Meet the Artist
My clay work is both hand-built and wheel thrown. Often vessels are begun on the wheel and then finished with coils to allow for off-center additions. I carve and incise each piece when it is slightly hard and then sponge the carving smoothly. After the initial firing, I add iron oxide washes, underglazes, and glaze to get the earthy look I want. Every piece features leaves, grasses, or flowers in a different configuration or pattern. I like leaving open-washed areas, so I often use brown or gold base clays to add texture and color. Each piece is unique.
My work has been shown in exhibits and galleries all over the United States and is in private collections. Please enjoy browsing through my online gallery and contact me if you are interested in any particular piece
