Creating in clay fuses my love of playing in the dirt, gardening, growing my food, and cooking. The work I make is formed primarily on the pottery wheel. I use very little glaze or slip as I rely on the method of salt glazing, wherein the final glazing is part of the firing process.
I strive to bring to the items used in everyday life a connection between the artistic and functional. Salt glazing completes this expression covering the pots with a thin durable glaze, allowing form to be the emphasis, revealing rather than covering the natural texture and body of the clay.
