I enjoy subtractive sculpture; the process of removing material from my hand-built and wheel thrown forms by cutting, piercing and carving. I love using porcelain clay because of it’s color and smooth texture. It is the finest clay and it fires into a strong, hard material. I make both functional pieces that are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe and decorative forms. The carvings and negative spaces of my designs show off the beautiful matte-white finish of the naked porcelain and the glossy blue-green color of the celadon glaze.
I thank God that I have found my center and I am grateful for Asheville’s creative community.
