I make pots for daily use as well as pots that may serve a more decorative or ritualistic role in the home. I throw with soft clay and try to impart some nice energy into the work. I have many influences but most are from the Leach/Hamada lineage of potters. After almost 20 years of making pots I never tire of coming to the wheel and moving the clay. It takes persistence, love, and hard work to make good pots. But at the same time a really wonderful pot can emerge from the wheel when my mind wonders and I am gazing out the studio window. I’m happy to do this work and to share it with others.
