Artist's Statement

I make wheel-thrown pottery with the emphasis on functionality, the tactile experience, and the intention of contemplation.
These unique vessels made by my hands should feel right in yours - objects to enjoy while pondering life, the universe, and everything. 

I take my aesthetic inspiration from organic patterns in nature, the rustic beauty in decay, and the joie de vivre of serendipity. 
I explore movement and texture through swirling spirals and carved surfaces to invite frequent use and ongoing discovery.

My work is heavily influenced by a bittersweet nostalgia, a sensitivity to ephemera, and an appreciation towards unobtrusive beauty. 
Ideas and memories, thoughts and dreams – we all have them - and it is my hope to share mine and inspire yours through my pottery.
