I try to make pots that are comfortable and interesting. I want the making of each pot to take its own direction but still relate to the ones that were made before and after it. I think this happens more as a result of enthusiasm and intuition than intentional design. I know what a pot’s shape, size, and intended use will be, but once the making process begins there are many subconscious, quickly made decisions that create possibilities for direction. It’s not a thought out process but more of a gut reaction.
