"My pots are hand built, pinching up each layer of rolled coil to build form. The pinched coils create a visual tempo and rhythm, inherent in the process. I lean toward more austere, spare forms: architectonic, Shakeresque. I often use geometric structure to map the geography of a pot. I approach the surface as a painter, brushing colored slips over the raw terracotta surface, layering multiple glazes after bisquing. I’m drawn to playful, saturated, and luminous colors. When looking at a finished piece, I like to see back through the layers to the beginning of the process: the red clay. I find inspiration in such diverse works as the lush paintings of Thomas Nozkowski and the pieced quilts of Gee’s Bend."
