I make functional ceramic vessels and serving ware with a twist. Each piece starts with an idea for a functional item for kitchen or home use. I then hand-build or throw forms on the wheel that are altered, assembled, and made unique with texture and glaze. My aim is to retain in the clay a feeling of exuberance, improvisation, and softness frozen into shape.

I graduated college with a BFA in ceramics. After a full career as an apparel designer I recently returned to working in clay.
