I find working with clay to be a very meditative process the feeling of the clay in my hands, the repetitive motion of the potter’s wheel. I enjoy taking a mound of clay and shaping it into a beautiful vessel that will have a functionality for everyday use be it a plate, bowl, mug, vase or teapot. I am interested in both the form and the surface. Working mainly with porcelain, I concentrate on simple shapes with added textures. Lately, I have been incorporating images from my garden – birds at play, a leaf, a flower.

Glazes intrigue me and I am willing to take risks in this area and am constantly experimenting with glaze formulations. I use various combinations of glazes often in conjunction with resist techniques to create various patterns that will embellish and finish the form.
