Ceramics


I work in Stoneware clay. My pieces are functional ware intended to be used everyday. I like the idea of affordable art that can be used and enjoyed by everyone. All my pieces are, of course, completely food safe, dishwasher and microwave safe as well. My pieces are a combination of hand-built and wheel-thrown techniques that allow me a great deal of flexibility in my designs. I decorate my ware with designs carved into the wet clay and use a range of transparent and reactive glazes.
