“My initial interest in ceramics began as a teenager in California in the 1970s. Over the years, it has been captivating to learn from a series of ceramicists, each with their own focus and insights, and to be inspired by the work of contemporary potters and other artists.
Early on, I was intrigued to see that a ceramic piece did not have to be utilitarian in order to be appreciated and the decorative nature of my current Raku and Pit Fired work reflects this. I find that these firing techniques encourage a unique pairing of pot and glaze that is constantly appealing.
It is very satisfying when it all comes together!”
