Contemporary Functional Ceramics
I make an unconventional line of earthenware pottery decorated with visible pinch marks, giving my wares an endearing and playful feel. The forms I create are unusual—a marriage of the organic and the geometrical, often incorporating asymmetry. I give the surfaces of my wares a matte finish using a subtle palette of glazes, terra sigillata, and mason stains, favoring black & white and pastel colors. My wares are intended for the home, the kitchen, or the great outdoors, to facilitate daily ritual and share in both transcendent and ordinary moments.
I also make a line of ceramic jewelry, including earrings and pendants, that mirrors the aesthetic of my pottery.
