I have been working with clay for over ten years. My passion is exploring the earthier, natural look of the pottery tradition. Each unique pot is hand-thrown in symmetrical forms, generally trending toward the pottery and style of the American Southwest. My focus has been exploring the smoke firing technique called Naked Raku. Currently, I have been working with carbon firing. This technique challenges me to explore this complex medium. My goal is to create one-of-a-kind pieces that challenge the mediums’ depths and also my creative energy.

You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
