Functional high-fired and raku pottery.
I am delighted to create and bring high-fired functional pottery and alternative-fired decorative works into the world, where they can be held, used, and enjoyed daily.
It is the juxtaposition of beauty and function that fascinates me. While someone could simply buy a cup or a decorative vase at a big-box store, they instead choose an object formed by my hand.
Choosing handmade over manufactured is the difference between walking along a street for exercise, and taking a stroll in the woods, where the senses are enveloped by green, scent of earth, and feel of soil underfoot. By holding, using, and displaying a handmade object, one brings a spark of magic into their life.
I am honored to get to be part of bringing magic into people’s lives. There is a rich community here in Western North Carolina that dedicates itself to creating this kind of beauty married with form and function, and it is my dream to contribute my voice to that community.
I hope that my pots bring you joy!
