WHAT I MAKE
Works in red and black stoneware, porcelain and paperclay.
Vessel-oriented individual pieces are entirely hand-built, with sprayed glazes and brushed decoration, emphasizing surface texture. Typical forms made are large round and square plates, sculptural teabowls and jugs, large standing forms, boat-shaped vessels and decorative wall pieces.
The vessel, as an object that gives form to an empty space, serves as the starting point for ideas. Nature, especially images of the deep sky from astronomy, and ancient man-made artifacts transformed by the passing of time are constant sources of inspiration.
To work with clay is a privilege: the infinite possibilities of earth-water-fire-air; the whole expanding Universe in a speck of Clay… "
