Artist's Statement: Ah shino - what other glaze can offer such a lifetime of beauty and learning? One first must develop a relationship with it in order to understand and unlock some of its mysteries. Getting to know this glaze has been intriguing, thrilling and frustrating as I have learned to dance between the glaze, the kiln and myself; never quite sure of what the end result will be, but confident that a truly one of a kind gem will emerge. Simple forms, functional or not, are the stage for the story to unfold, incorporating movement and beauty of imperfection into pieces that add to the rituals of everyday life.
