Juried Member Since 2003

I began making pottery as stoneware at University of Vermont. Museum visits induced me to try porcelain, a translucent clay body which is almost glass. During the 70s raku became very popular, so I evolved into this method as it gave my forms more elegant shapes and spectacular colors.
I use materials gathered from nature to create the smoky atmosphere within the cannisters which receive the pots after their removal from my kiln. This cooling cycle draws oxygen from the glaze to create flame patterned designs upon the glaze surfaces which imparts a timeless quality to my shapes
