About

A passion to express has led me to many creative projects throughout the years. I've now rediscovered clay after having played with photography, theatre, music, costume design, acting for stage and screen and life modeling.
I experience creativity as a dialogue between medium and artist. My conversations with clay encourage imperfections into form and function. I like to dig into the meat of the moment by using a gritty clay for making slabs and "rough coils". Textures and the essence of trees and the flow of underwater life emerge into form.
Much of my work uses my own version of a copper/verdigris glaze as well as other glazes that accentuate the lumps, bumps and imperfections of the finished surface.
