Most of my work is thrown on the wheel, then altered and combined with hand-built forms to create beautiful, yet functional pieces. Working with porcelain and stoneware I use multiple layers of handmade glazes to achieve rich, fluid surfaces, which are strongly influenced by my background in painting.

The final process includes various types of atmospheric firings, either reduction or oxidation in the gas kiln to obtain the surface qualities in my glazes that I look for in each piece.
