I have been working as a studio potter for more than 30 years. Over this time, my style has evolved while maintaining a fluid relationship to influences that were formed early. A deep appreciation for the colors and classic forms of the mid-century aesthetic has led to inventive updates and stylish re-interpretations that form a very recognizable personal imprint. Expressive, sculptural, functional and decorative centerpieces, inspired by the gorgeous geometry of succulent plants, best describes this colorful, ever evolving, and joyous body of ceramic work. Each piece is thrown on the wheel, then a series of hand processes are used to alter the shapes. Colored glazes are applied in various ways, to achieve lively, unusual and satisfying color groupings, and deliciously soft surfaces. The intention is to make pieces that are evenly thrown and feel lightweight and balanced.
