I often work in series by constructing a number of similar pieces,
though no two are ever exactly alike. Much of my work is “hand-built,”
meaning that the work is made or assembled from many parts. This
hand-built work is usually very detailed. The “thrown”
work, which is made on the potter’s wheel, is by contrast
very plain and simple, both in form and in decoration, with the
lids being somewhat more decorative. The lids are turned on my
wood lathe and accented with other materials.
My interests and the inspiration for most of my work tend to
come from just a few sources. I am very interested in archaeology
and in all things ancient, particularly the Neolithic and Bronze
Ages. Also, I have particular interests in architecture and our
natural environment. How this translates I cannot exactly say
other than it is a synthesis that manifests itself in and comes
from the spirit within.
