I am currently exploring words on very simple cup and bowl forms. The clay lends physicality to the word; I like to play with the pot holding the text and the text holding the pot. The words on the clay – blessings, messages and decorations – serve as reminders to the holder, reflecting their goodness and playfulness, and that of life itself.  Carving is also utilized to create wave-like textures similar to the ocean floor, inviting the hand to explore form.

Simple designs are most appealing to me – the subtleness of the surface and the comfort of stacking multiples. With limitless uses, my pots bring beauty, serenity and celebration to any place in the home. I feel great joy in knowing that coffee is brewed, biscuits are baked, and flowers are picked just because there is a loving place to come home to in pottery.
