My goal in creating ceramic work is to bridge the divide between elegant china and down-to-earth pottery. I deliberately leave clay surfaces irregular so that they look handled and handleable. Including hints at my observations of the world, I want my pottery to invite use, while also subverting contemporary “run of the mill” preconceptions of what pottery is, can, and should be. As I seek to develop my own “garden of earthly delights” motif, I draw inspiration from the tradition of personal intimation in ceramic form and decoration that has been handed down, quite literally, through the ages.
