Our Story

I have been working in clay, building sculpture, making pots and teaching for forty years. In all of my work I have looked for the stories that ordinary objects hold. I’m seeking resonance in that human connection, exploring the language of utility and form to find the eloquence of mute objects.
I’m drawn to the edges between hard and soft, spontaneous and ordered. I keep making things in order to explore that edge; the seam between mass and emptiness, between my conscious mind and all that is just beneath that layer.
