My work is all hand built stoneware. Exploring the tension between surface and form, my functional ware emphasizes textures with an interplay between glazed and unglazed surfaces. I enjoy working in different themes which adds variety to my work and allows me to explore more fully certain aspects of form and surface. More recently I have been turning to more sculptural works, creating a series of larger animal forms. In my latest series I have begun exploring the passage of time, and how it is expressed in the faces and hands of older people.
