Artist Statement

All of my pieces are wheel thrown and handcrafted in high-fire stoneware. Each of the highly detailed motifs are painstakingly applied by hand, using specially crafted, vibrant underglazes imported from Korea. I have been perfecting this style of highly detailed motif application for nearly 7 years. Every piece is fired to cone 6, using only food safe glazes, and all are designed with functionality in mind.
