Artist Statement:

Tactile rhythmic patterning and texture, incised, rutted, eroded; glaze breaks over sharp edges and pools within pockets. The dimensional textures transform into a type of braille, allowing a sensual knowledge through surface and design to create an intimate interaction, allowing beauty to be seen through the sense of touch. An unconscious sense of pleasure within your daily routine.
The uniqueness of my pottery comes from immense attention to detail and small surprises hidden within the form and surface. My carvings bring a sense of the organic natural world into clean and angular elements of design. The glaze allows for a rich, smooth texture for the clay body to shine through.
