Artist Statement

The long river of time told by daily ceramic wares never fails to capture my curiosity and spirit.  Making and learning within this lineage is focused and of pleasure in so many ways.  To center around daily utility is a tuning effort.  Unobscured functional beauty that offers both quiet pause and effortless sharing, naturally flows us into the same river.
