As I work, I consider form, size, weight and color to suit the function I'm aiming for, all in relation to the human body and the domestic space. I also welcome chance and spontaneity and the freshness they bring with them.
My building technique with slabs reflects my attraction to architecture and architectural elements and sensibilities; in maintaining the softness and sensuality of clay, I rely on using patterning and sewing techniques from my past experience in costume design.
Bowls and Plates
The plain facts: I use stoneware and mid-range porcelain, build most of my work from slabs and occasionally coils. I use slips and glazes and then fire to 1240c in an electric kiln.
