Artist's Statement: I love clay and have been a potter for many years mostly working in high temp atmospheric firing. In recent years however, I have been exploring alternative surfaces for terra cotta firing. I use color and imagery a lot, both literal and abstract. My goal is to create a surface that has texture and depth, perhaps some intrigue or an element of surprise. My concern always is to start with a strong form, integrated with appropriate surface design. I am enjoying using black terra sigillata as an underlying grounding layer. I am seeking both simplicity and subtle complexity at once.
