Formation of my vessels begins with two identical slabs of clay that have been cut into freeform shapes that I find interesting. I attach them to each other and use my hands and various tools to add volume. The decorative elements of my vessels are driven by their sculptural forms. I draw through the applied colored layer to the base clay below; I find the use of dark clay emphasizes line and the intensity of color.
My work is always changing. Clay gives me infinite challenges, inspiration and means of expressing my love of working with my hands.
