I make unique,functional pottery that is meant to adorn the home. My goal is to enhance the celebration of daily life and enrich it's simple joys. I think a well make pot should be able to heighten the daily routine of eating and drinking to a beautiful and enjoyable experience. Each piece of pottery is handmade, by me, using wheel throwing techniques and sometimes hand altering the form once it is removed from the wheel. The pottery is high fired in a gas kiln to around 2300 degrees in a reduction atmosphere. Each firing takes approximately 12 hours to complete with another 24 hours allowed for cooling of the kiln. All the pottery is light weigh, dishwasher and microwave safe. Some examples of the type of pottery I make are; dinnerware, vases, pithcers, servingware, ikebana flower arranging vases, and table top fountains. My work can be found at Athena, Wandering Turtle Art Gallery and Oliver Winery in Bloomington In as well as at art fairs in Indiana and the surrounding states.
