Welcome to my world of ceramic art!
I hand build all of my one-of-a-kind pottery pieces using the hard and soft slab method as opposed to throwing on the wheel. This method allows for a more organic feel and a greater artistic range of shapes and sizes.
Each piece has its own unique personality achieved by incorporating found objects or my own handmade stamps to add interesting textures. I especially enjoy experimenting with glaze combinations.
Many people like to simply display my pieces in their home or office, but they can also be used functionally. The bowls, trays, vases and teapots are oven and microwave safe and all the glazes I use are food safe.
I've been having fun with tray forms lately! There are so many different ways to glaze these simple forms. Each way requires a different set of skills. But what they all have in common is that they are fun to do!
