My pottery is a constant exploration of shape, design and color. I feel the asymmetrical shapes I design give each piece a dynamic quality. I try to capture movement and add some whimsy. High fire colored clays using an ancient Japanese method called Nerikomi decorates each piece. All sculptural pieces are functional; the inside and handles of each piece is glazed and the outside has a matte finish.

Two books include photos of my work, Hand Built Ceramics and 500 Pitchers.
