For me, there has always been something fascinating and magical about pottery — taking products from the earth, combining them in unique ways, and creating something artistic as well as utilitarian.
Pottery speaks directly to what it means to be human. I can imagine early people sitting around a fire, discovering how heat made clay hard and how to shape clay into useful containers. Most importantly, they chose to make pots interesting to look at and a joy to touch by adding color and texture.
My goal is to carefully craft pots, offering people in our “fast-food” society a reason to stop and notice how something looks and feels … Something that slows them down, makes them aware of themselves, and conveys a sense of the spirit of humanity.
