Contemporary Studio Pottery

I believe hand-made utilitarian objects have an intrinsic value that is rare to find today. Though machines can produce well designed products, they can not replicate the soulful nuances of the human touch.

My passion for food, experience and clay have culminated into my current body of work. My pots are meant to enhance the space that they occupy, and the service to which they provide. They are all hand-made and one of a kind pieces.
