Artist Statement


I like clay. I liked it as a small child and I still like it in my seventies.  I enjoy preparing, throwing, trimming, adding handles, and firing clay. It's the perfect material to make functional ware to be enjoyed every day. I focus on soda firing pottery because the process accentuates both the qualities of the clay and the flame path.  I can emphasize rather than mask the marks my hands make throwing vessels and pulling handles.  This year I am having a ball and pulling my hair out working on marbled soda vessels.
