An obsessive love of clay has led me to devote my life to being a potter. In 1973, I made my first pot and I knew I had found my calling.
Primitive handbuilding techniques have always interested me, but my training as a production potter left me little time for exploration.
The clay holds infinite possibilities. Mastering technique has led me to push the limits of form. Feeling the clay move, unlocking the secrets of its structural potential drives me to create.
I have come to think of my present work as a "Growth Series"- a stage of development that has taken me away from the foundation of my training as a functional potter and led me to a more artistic approach.
