My work consists primarily of wheel thrown functional stoneware. For me, the fun is in the forming of the vessel. I find the tactile feeling of the clay in my hands as it passes through my fingers reassuring and relaxing. When I’m finished throwing a pot or have just removed it from the wheel, for me at least, it is at the pinnacle of it’s beauty. It feels alive and still full of limitless possibilities. As it goes from wet to dry, some of that vitality evaporates as well. The application of a glaze layer is an attempt to recapture some of that initial beauty.

Over the years I have experimented in a variety of firing temperatures and techniques. From experimental low fire techniques, like naked raku, horsehair firing, stanous cloride fuming, mid range oxidation firing, crystaline glazes, ash glazes, cone 10 reduction firing, wood and salt firing. There are certain aspects of each that keep me from commiting to only one type. I try to let the work tell me what type of glaze or firing will best suit it.
