The photo of me is my self-portrait vase on a good hair day, though I am in fact human and if I see a way to do it I might include a photo of my human face when the time is right.

I love the feeling of clay taking shape on the wheel and I like to experiment with colors. I’m often surprised by the way something turns out, sometimes in a bad way, usually in a good way. When both form and glaze work out it’s exciting for me, like getting cool presents that I get to pass on to others.
