Pottery


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 make several sizes of serving bowls from 13" in diameter down to 11" in diameter, serving platters, plates in various sizes and shapes, coffee cups, bud vases, bird houses, bird feeders and bird baths, baking dishes, tea pot and cup sets, and several one off pieces. I decorate my ware with designs carved into the wet clay and use a range transparent and reactive glazes to finish the ware.
