Artist Statement | I want my pottery to become part of the daily flow of domestic life, to contribute to the enjoyment of preparing, presenting, and serving food. I am concerned with the expression of line, color, patterns, and their relationship to hardy pottery forms, and I hope my pots convey a sense of exuberance and casual spontaneity.
