Studio Description: My work is about vessels and the characteristics that make the vessel come alive: volume, texture, color, and scale. One of my objectives is, through my vessels, to preserve the connection between contemporary ceramic expression and pottery’s origins as functional containers, not to transform and abandon it.

Raku is a practice that attracts me in many ways; tradition, culture, spontaneity, individualism, and physicality to name a few. Its historic origins serve as a constant reminder to me of where the craft has evolved from, while it’s contemporary incarnation is very different. It is a process that allows me to work simultaneously in a traditional method where all the rules have been established, and a contemporary technique where the rules are constantly in question.
