Artist Statement:

My work is thrown on a potters wheel as well as constructed using hand-building techniques. I deliberately leave evidence of my hand in each piece by creating intuitive marks into the clay. My surfaces are inspired by early 20th century minimalism and painters associated with Bauhaus, while my forms are influenced by early traditional Korean and Japanese functional pottery. I build visually intriguing layers on each pot’s surface through texture, layering of slips, and painterly brush strokes. My surfaces consist of a thin white slip poured or dipped over red or brown clay. I then fire to cone 1 with the addition of pops of colorful underglaze and a final coating of clear glaze.
