I work with an iron-bearing stoneware and fire in reduction to cone 9/10. I have worked on the wheel and with coils and slabs. My wheel-thrown pieces begin with a controlled idea of form and are finished with asymmetric design elements to soften and enhance the pottery. Coil-built and slab vessels begin with a looser idea of form and are given definition and precision as they are finished. Layering glazes and stains completes the work. I am especially interested in subtle nuances of shape and color that continually reveal something new.
