About Me

Artist Statement

Working with clay has truly been a life changing experience. It once used to be a field of study in college, but now a destination to relieve stress, find sanctuary and explore forms, spectrum colors and textures. In many ways, pottery mimics life. It is a collaborative effort between my will and the clay’s. Each time I set the clay in front of me, the end result isn’t exactly what I envisioned, but a better version.

My functional work is about beauty and aesthetics. These pieces work hard to serve everyday, but when it is idle, it must also serve to please the eye and be held and adored. This is where the forms, colors and textures come to play.

The clay medium has a lifetime of stories to tell,… my own story has only just begun.

  1. Hi, Didn’t see an email contact so I hope this works. Your work is quite beautiful. I bought few cups as a gift at Haymaker and the person to whom they were given asked if the glazing was safe to drink from. I assume so but thought I should double check. Thanks.

  2. Haha, I was looking for an email too! I found an envelope last night when I was sorting through an old pile of this and that. It was for 2frog studio, and it was about “bringing the Business of Art to the Digital Age”. Is this you and are you still doing this? Thanks!
