My slab constructed ceramics are made of terra cotta, a red earthenware clay. Initially a piece is conceived as a two dimensional drawing followed by the creation of pattern pieces – deconstructed versions of the ultimate three dimensional form – which are attached to the clay slab. Package design and dressmaking techniques come into play as the piece is brought to life by cutting, folding, darting and connecting. Visual and tactile depth is developed through the application of multiple layers of clay, slips, stains and glazes, and by scraping, incising and carving into the surface. The work is twice fired in an electric kiln.

Limit prolonged exposure to high acid and highly pigmented foods that can affect glazed surfaces by using my ceramics for food service but not storage. The can accommodate hot and cold foods but should not be used in the microwave, oven, or on a stovetop. To preserve their life and beauty, hand washing is recommended.
