Artist Statement
I make intimate sculptures and functional work.Many are rattles. Each is hand formed from slabs, pinching and or coils. I apply textures through carving, slip trailing and stamping. I have begun experimenting with screen printing. I use mid range stoneware and porcelain. Finishes include pit fire, raku, and cone 6 oxidation, but you never know what I'll try next.
I have been making things with clay "in my spare time" since I was a teenager. Now that I am retired I am spending more time honing my craft. While I did not pursue an art degree I have taken dozens of art workshops from a wealth of talented instructors, most in the ceramics realm.
