During my three decades as a ceramic artist, much of my work has been creating functional vessels. I do this because I love the idea of people using my creations in their daily lives . . . a clay mug for morning coffee, a hand-thrown bowl filled with popcorn or ice cream. This simple act of using one of my vessels reflects that someone cared enough to create a vessel from clay, and someone else cared enough to purchase and use this unique vessel . . . establishing a circle of energy between clay, beauty, creator, admirer.My quest as an artist is to explore color, shape, texture. I do that through working in clay . . . creating beautiful and functional vessels. I am energized by using everyday vessels such as mugs, bowls, jars and plates that I make as well as vessels other artists create.
It is my hope that through my work in the arts, the world we live in is more peaceful and beautiful.
