About Me…

All of my clay work is hand-built and one-of-a-kind.

Some pots do bear a family resemblance

but each remains unique unto itself.

Using my own pinch-strip or slab method of construction,

 I build up the side walls to capture the space within.  

As the piece begins to breathe on its own and a personality emerges,

I yield to the nature of the clay.

 No longer am I in control of where I go or what lead I follow,

or even what occurs when I get there.  

THE CLAY SPEAKS TO ME.

 It tells me what it wants to be when it grows up and I listen.

We transform each other – my clay work becomes my vision;

I become my clay work. 

My entire being, not just my hands, is an integral part of the process. 

What emerges just HAPPENS

from the visual appeal

to the featherweight feel of each piece.

 

CLAY – I LOVE WHERE IT TAKES ME !
