I believe my creative abilities are a gift from God so it feels right to nurture the artist in me. I’m so grateful for every second that I am able to create new work.
I use porcelain and wheel-throw vessels and I also hand-build using clay slabs. I enjoy piercing and carving away material to create new, unique designs. On my functional pots, I glaze the exterior but I often keep the outside of the decorative pots clean, free of glazes to show off the beautiful, smooth claybody so the shiny glaze color inside can pop through the negative spaces. Some resemble sun bleached coral or fallen leaves in water. The pure white color of porcelain reflects light and shadow beautifuly, accentuating surface textures and colors adding depth to the forms.
My favorite part of the creative process is when I allow myself time to play because it’s fun exploring new design ideas.
