Artist's Statement: "A good clay form has a right to exist by itself; the application of a glaze of decoration is a secondary matter. If a pot is to be admired (just) for its color or decoration, then it is a failure." I wrote this 48 years ago, and I still believe it today. It is my hope my decorations become an integral part of my pots: not just a superficial adornment.
