Curiosity drives my process and is what I strive to convey in the work. The materiality of clay fascinates me, with its ability to record the subtle variations that develop through working. Choosing such a material requires me to be equally as receptive throughout the process. Soft-slabs allow me to work slowly and formulaically. Bare clay and firing with wood highlights qualities that draw me in. The rich surfaces continually reveal themselves in different light.

Handmade pots are countercultural; these pots, their makers, and their users choose to focus their efforts away from the vulgarity of our societal values. With our current political climate and the rapid speed of life, I am easily consumed by fears and schedules. Handmade pots encourage their users to slow down and celebrate daily life. These objects often serve as a window to the temperament of the maker. They invite the user to relate to these objects on an interpersonal level. My goal is to support intimate connections between people and the simple things they find comfort in.
