I love the play between chaos and control in my work. I love soft organic shapes and use big open forms as a canvas. I love the primitiveness of hand building but use a restrained hand while glazing to let the marks and cracks speak. When I throw a form, I go for clean lines but strive for chaos and bold color during glazing. As a long time working artist I find great satisfaction in spontaneity and happy accidents. I often say that clay is addictive but really I feel it is returning us to our roots..
