My days are paced to the rhythm of my studio. I have a smallish kiln and it is almost always firing these days. Pots come out of the kiln and I try to find or create the glaze that fits their personality. Then into the kiln overnight and the exciting moment when they come out brilliantly colored and complete. This is usually in the morning and I set aside some time to just sit on the porch and contemplate them.
I was trained initially in printmaking and exhibited in the States and in Europe before returning to graduate school to study computer animation. After just a decade in commercial animation I returned to my first love - clay. My pots are informed by two decades of drawing and an affection for material that is both fragile and durable. Like ourselves.
