In my work I strive to capture the metamorphosis from a lump of clay to a mature work proclaiming its personality, the movement of the wheel and my hands and tools, and the ever-changing atmosphere in the kiln.
While I lack the patience of a gardener or painter, I am immensely satisfied by the immediacy of throwing, the endless opportunity to try something a little differently. I experiment; I fail, or I should say, rather, that I don’t always keep the result, yet there is nearly always some kernel of understanding gained in that process, to inform the next experience. I strive to understand when the clay signals me that its statement is clear, it has nothing more to say.
