My pottery is inspired by traditional crafts around the world. The forms come from the unfailing shapes of simple functional ware, but the surface designs come from animal imagery on petroglyphs, wood carvings and fabric paintings of traditional cultures.
I have traveled widely, primarily in West Africa, to meet craftspeople that still work in the old ways. I am as excited by indigenous architecture, weaving and fabric dyeing as by traditional pottery. I try to incorporate the imagery from traditional media onto clay without losing their original vitality.
I work in stoneware. My pieces are durable and intended for every day use. They are lead-free, and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.
