Artist Statement
I live in Boulder, Colorado, and work from a studio in my home. I use a porcelain clay body and fire in a gas kiln. I have always been interested in imagery on clay. I am inspired by the dishes from my past and often feel connected to the serving dishes surrounding celebrations—that mashed potato bowl of my great grandmother, or favorite coffee mug as a child. I often wonder what is about certain mugs, plates, vases that connects us and becomes a part of our lives.
