Making pottery is about giving and receiving. As the pot gives and receives simultaneously it becomes an act of hospitality. I hope the objects I make will fulfill the emotive need to delight in the things we see and touch, whatever their everyday use. I try to give pleasure by making functional objects. Through repetitions that are imperceptible but real variations, I hope my work will endure, and hence survive the fashionable object.
I use porcelain clay. Most of it is wheel thrown and altered. While some pieces have figurative elements, all of my work is glazed and decorated to enhance visual and tactile contrasts. I fire my pots in a gas kiln to cone ten.
