In studying ceramics, I have been fascinated by the complex problems of integrating three essential elements of ceramic design: form, surface, and function. My forms are a wheel-thrown mixture of the mechanical and the whimsical, with flowing lines juxtaposed with hard edges. Many pieces are altered after they come off the wheel. The surfaces are then treated as a blank canvas. Rather than dipping or pouring glazes, I like the control of a sprayed surface, mixed with the more painterly result of a wood ash glaze.

What I love about creating functional pieces of art is they will not be hidden behind a cabinet but used.  I savor the image of the viewer having a relationship with the piece of pottery that speaks to their love of food and drink, whether pouring, serving, or sipping.”

For more than 15 years, I have taught art, sculpture, and ceramics. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Carolina University, I have also worked professionally as a potter and as a designer. My work has been featured in both national and international exhibitions.

Currently, I am working exclusively in porcelain known for its strength and delicate beauty.  The pieces are fired in oxidation to approximately 2200 degrees Fahrenheit.
