I work almost exclusively in porcelain, creating functional pieces. I’m attracted to porcelain’s sensuality, translucency and delicacy.
Whether my pieces are thrown on the potter’s wheel or created from slabs, my focus is the same. I’m interested in the gestural and fluid quality of the material, either in the form itself or on the surface through the use of slip lines and marks. In glazing my pieces, I try to highlight that fluidity through the use of celadon glazes and sulfates.
I spend my summers on Outer Cape Cod, where the ocean, sand and dunes are a continual source of inspiration.
