I’m interested in how the use of imagery and pattern might connect someone to a piece. I’ve recently been changing the placement of pattern and adding negative space, where pattern is added to hide or accentuate areas. The placement of pattern and color choice can also affect whether a piece is seen as contemporary or traditional. While designing my work, I look to home décor themes; Eclectic, Bohemian, and Contemporary styles help form my ideas about making pottery for the home.
I've chosen to throw with dark-brown stoneware because it’s equally rich with or without glaze, allowing me to create pattern in unglazed areas. Using glaze resist techniques, I create layers of color and pattern on each surface. I'm partial to botanical and abstract patterns, high-gloss transparent glazes, jewel tones, metallics, bare clay and layers. I often integrate these design essentials into my work. A piece is successful when the glaze fluctuates effortlessly throughout the form.
I became a full-time studio potter in 2008 after earning a BFA from Alfred University. I make functional and raku pottery, along with lamps and cabinet hardware, using a variety of glaze colors and patterns that can be mixed and matched. I sell my pottery locally in Clinton, NY through my studio, online and at craft shows and in galleries throughout the country.
Most tableware is microwave, dishwasher, and food safe.
If gold luster is used on a piece it must be hand washed and may not go in the microwave.
