Artist's Statement: My work is highly informed by studies in the history of ceramics, especially Chinese Song Dynasty porcelains. I love the glow of translucent porcelain and a saturated iron or celadon glaze. I am fascinated by pattern and repetition of surface design. My challenge is to gracefully fit that design onto a three dimensional form. The throwing, slip trailing and other decorative processes are contemplative but I intend my work to be used as well as contemplated.
