To create my pieces, I use hand-building and wheel-thrown techniques both separately and in combinations. Quality craftsmanship is of vital concern with each vessel. Each piece is hand-crafted individually and no pieces are ever slipcast. I’ve chosen to work with an earthenware clay body that I fire to cone 06, 1818 degrees. Once constructed, careful attention is paid to the decoration process. My vessels are meticulously decorated on the exterior with brushed-on, layered ceramic glazes. A colored glaze is then poured into the interior to complete the piece. I am the designer, the builder and the decorator of my original designs.
