I make pottery and ceramic pieces to honor the past, present, and the future. The contrast between the two clay bodies I use are immense, black and white, is one end of the spectrum to the other. I use strong and delicate color choices to pull a person into my objects. They can be drawn together with subtle glazes containing hints of color or deep tonal value. I like to focus on having that be the line that keeps all the pieces drawn together. I want to make things with a tangible and functional value. Things that people can hold and feel and use and love. My work is about giving an object functional purpose and offering others a way to use, be a part of, and experience that purpose.
