The foundation of my training is in production pottery. I start with an idea for the shape, make the group of pots, and assess what was successful (or not). I then incorporate improvements into the next round of work. My goal is to create pots that are balanced and comfortable to use with an emphasis on fluid movement of shape. While most of my work is finished in cone 5 oxidation firings, my favorite work is fired in wood kilns. It is this combination of graceful lines in the clay and flame that represents my best offerings.
