I have been a painter, illustrator and graphic designer all my life.
Ten years ago I became interested in ceramics. Making pots has become
my passion. Clay is an extension of myself. Learning each day to define
the form a little better. I am constantly juggling control and spontaneity,
looking to find my own voice in clay. My pottery, when it is successful,
demands to be held. It is a thrill to watch someone hold my pot as if
it is a thing of beauty, a cherished object.
For me, glazing is the most interesting part of the entire
process. I am a compulsive tester, and I while I am not always thrilled
by the results of a firing, I always find it exhilarating. The glazes
I use are applied by airbrush. This allows me to blend multiple glazes
together seamlessly and to isolate specific colors to paint the form.
I am always trying to push a little further tweaking my glaze formulas
to give a little better surface, a little deeper color. My hope is that
my ideas continue to come and to grow with my skill.
