I make useful pots. After 40 plus years, the sustaining passion for being a potter comes from the desire to create pots that are beautiful to look at and hold, to give distinct pleasure in use, and to carry on a subtle conversation with the user through the work.

I point my work towards a quiet simplicity. I look to subtlety and nuance as the foundation for my aesthetic. The essence that I am seeking in this work is a stripped, almost brutal, rawness.

Ash glazes over colored and crackle clay slips have become the essential focus in integrating form and surface in my work. This also has allowed for a greater variability of surface texture and color. These variations often are not visible at first glance but later, through use, reveal additional layers to the user.
