I make functional pottery using tinted stoneware slips. The results reference 17th century Staffordshire slipware, Turkish Ebru patterns, Venetian marbled papers and French agateware, but I've tinkered with the palette to create something new. Firing each piece with a buttery satin glaze, I permanently preserve both my gesture and the slip’s fleeting fluidity. I love the contrast of the colors’ crisp definition and the patterns’ psychedelic softness. Each piece is a unique record of a specific moment in time. No two pieces are alike, but they relate to each other through shared palettes, patterns, and line quality.
