I work on common forms- bowls, vases, mugs and cups. These are the vessels people use. This is art that can live in a person's home and in the hands. Making these pieces is akin to playing music or writing a poem in a standard form. The variation is in the balance of the form's lines and the way color plays on its surface. Another aspect I delight in is the unexpected way the materials interact with the fire, always producing something I did not look for but rejoice in finding.
