My pots are simple in form and surface design with architectural references. I try to make balanced pots that would be nice to have in the home for use or just be around. I really enjoy making pots and hope that they bring a little light to people’s lives.
I’m currently working with a dark stoneware clay because I love the rich color of the clay body and wanted to have some areas of bare clay showing through on the surfaces of the pots. I’m using a printing technique called mono-print transferring to decorate the surfaces. I paint slip onto cut pieces of paper and then transfer them onto the pot making a design. I love the imperfections that this process leaves on the surface of the pot. And the clean lines I can get from the process. I started out as a printmaker and have always gravitated to the qualities of hand printed images.
