ARTIST STATEMENT

My pottery is a constant exploration of shape, design and color. My favorite part of the process is designing new shapes. I am looking to make that piece unique, either giving it whimsy or making it beautiful or both. I tend to design asymmetrical pieces that convey movement within the piece.

Colored clay creates the design on the pottery piece. I take stoneware and add high fire colorants to the white clay body. I use solid clay colors or stack several colors of clay together, manipulating them to produce a design and then roll that into a clay slab using a rolling pin. I create two slabs with similar designs on them, use a template to position the design and cut out the sides. These are attached to a base. If the piece has a handle, it is attached at this time. All vases and pitchers hold water.

I grew up in Portland and have a degree in Graphic Design from Portland State University. Two books include photos of my work, Hand Built Ceramics and 500 Pitchers.
