Artist's Statement: I discovered ceramics near the end of college education. I was majoring in physical chemistry with minors in computer science, and mathematics. I took ceramics to fulfill my general education requirements. I was quite interested and perplexed to discover how much satisfaction and fulfillment sitting in front of a wheel and creating a form from mud gave me.
Over the years I have discovered ceramics has increased my mental vocabulary from terms such as "Why", "How", "Parsec" "PV=nRT", "Molarity", "If, Then, Else" to include terms such as "form", "aesthetics", "technique" , "what if", "How-bout", "wow!" and "yippie!"
am drawn to the learning experience; I was attracted to science because it helps
me to understand how the mechanical universe works. Ceramics helps me understand
and guide me in the discovery of my personal creativity aesthetics, pleasures
