About the work:

I work in porcelain, fired in oxidation to cone 10 (2050°F). I mostly work on the wheel- a process which I fell in love with from the first moment. I seek to find a balance between beauty and function- without compromising on either end. No two pieces are exactly alike. I do a lot of detail work with slip trailing and custom designed laser printed decals. Much of my work goes through 3 firings to achieve the final results.

My own kitchen shelves are spilling over with handmade pots that have been made by dozens and dozens of potters. Pots are made to be used- and I hope that one of my pieces will find its way into your cupboard, your dish drainer... your hands.
