My first love was fire, second was mud, so there is little mystery that I’ve landed in the realm of wood fired ceramics. My work is an investigation of form, earthen materials, and their interactions with intense prolonged exposure to a river of fire. Creating a successful finished piece is certainly a motivating factor, but the desire to make forms that push, pull, squeeze, soften, and tease the flame as it progresses through the kiln is my ultimate motivation. The hope is to arrive at an artifact that contains a confluence of human interaction with the natural world, with a sensitivity to the countless cultural interactions of the past.
