I am drawn to design and build pieces that people use in their daily lives. I have created hand built pottery and collage for nearly thirty years. I work with low-fire clay, applying color with underglaze. Other techniques include wax-resist, printing/embossing, and sgraffiato (carving into unfired clay after color is applied). I construct my shapes by pressing slabs of clay, rolled by hand, into forms I have built or found.
I continue to be curious about what remains after carving into painted clay and the effect of the white space after almost covering an area with color. My work is informed by various factors, some of which are my mathematics background, a meditation and yoga practice, what I read, and the patterns and geometry of daily life.
