I am a potter because I love making pots. The pots I construct are those pieces that please me. I am not potting with hopes of being rich and I am not making pots with aspirations of a ceramic revolution.

I am a potter because I love using pots. My cupboards are filled with stacks of plates and cups, mugs and bowls. Shelves and tables throughout the house display jars, pitchers and platters. Some of this collection I have made, but most were unpacked form other potter’s kilns. Every morning, after coffee has brewed, I choose a mug that seems best for the day. While grabbing the handle, thoughts and memories of the maker take over. I love thinking of the maker each time I interact with their work and when I use my own pieces, my eyes follow soft curves while fingers trace lips and feet, reminding me why the pot in hand was pulled aside and brought into my personal life. All these pieces and all the art that I choose to be surround by enrich my life and while living alongside and interacting with, I am educated and inspired by each.

I am deeply satisfied when my ceramic interpretations create an aesthetic attraction upon entering individuals’ private lives. I choose to hand build and wheel build utilitarian pottery with hopes my cups are the first to dirty once unloaded from dishwashers and my vases are the first filled with spring flowers.
