Ceramics have been part of my life for the past 30 years and I never cease to be impressed by clay’s multiple qualities. I love testing the limits and experimenting by adding things like sand, charcoal or soft stone -- anything that can add texture or burn out, leaving craters and other irregular markings. I prefer working with a clay body that contains a lot of grog, which I often like to accentuate.
My work is mostly large and not always functional. Simple asymmetric forms with minimal decoration are my preference. I am strongly inspired by nature -- rock formations, tree bark, decaying wood, etc., often blending opposites into one piece.
