I am a studio potter, working primarily in wheel thrown porcelain, making one of a kind functional pots, striving for beauty using the nuances of line and curve.

                                                       

 

   My work in clay is a metaphor for life; the creating, the changing and the discovery. I am driven by the endless possibilities and the challenge of claryifying a design and exploring a shape. I strive for functional elegance using the nuances of line and curve. I find my voice in clay exploring visual possibilites that I hope will engage the viewer.
