I am a professional jewelry designer who fell in love with clay and have balanced both professions for 30 years.
Everything that I make is made by hand with natural materials. Each firing is totally unique resulting in one of a kind pieces. I draw my utilitarian inspiration from my attraction to a beautiful table.
My baby bowls are meant to be whimsical. When I engrave the designs and add the color I am always thinking about the connection of the bowl to the child who will use it.
My sculptures are built the same way as Korean potters would build big jars, with large coils they are pinched and paddled. I rarely glaze them, finding that the raw nature of a wood firing makes them look like peaceful unearthed treasures.
