Garden color for the table

For 37 years I have been professional potter and student of ceramics. I completed an MFA at the NYSCC at Alfred University in 1992 and later received grants including a Fulbright and a MAAA/NEA. My work is in numerous public and private collections including the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, and the permanent collection of WOCEF in Korea. Currently I teach, lecture and show nationally and internationally.

My artworks for the table often refer to traditional porcelain or restaurant whitewares, but with softer forms inspired by the playful and abundant qualities of Mexican earthenware. I invented my own production process after studying clay mold fragments in antiquated factories and museums. After forming pieces in molds, on the wheel, or both, I finish with stamps, slips, sprigs and multihued glazes. Though my colors can evoke a healthy garden in bloom, I aim for a strength of form that feels muscular and strong while showing fluidity. In this way I play both ends of the spectrum, from the dynamic and substantive to the detailed and dreamy--full of surprise. My artwork is best presented with a freshly prepared meal.
