When it comes to making pottery I do what makes me happy. I am inspired by many things around me including the organic forms and colors found in nature, plants, flowers, the ocean, etc. I am always striving to find the balance between function, comfort, and beauty in my work. I create with the intention of bringing pleasure and enjoyment with the use of my pottery, whether it is in your everyday food rituals or while entertaining your friends and loved ones. Made with the purpose of enhancing your tactile experience, my work is influenced by everything around me. My work is wheel thrown porcelain, it is fired in a gas kiln to cone 10. I mix all of my own clay and glazes in my home studio in Copper Hill, Va.
