I make pottery so that people can incorporate beauty into their daily living. While I'm working, my mind wanders to the new owners of my pots. They seem familiar to me even though we haven't met. I imagine how the piece will be received into their homes, how it will be used, and how it will feel in their hands. I carefully consider who will use the piece and what their lifestyle is. Is it a gift? Or will it become someone's new favorite coffee mug?
I'm inspired by mid-century modern design. I love the simple lines and the quirky shapes that make this era of ingenuity so unique and timeless. The element of the design that I find most challenging is creating something unique while maintaining its simplicity. I've learned that simple design is not simple to create. While my pots must be pleasing to the eye and function well, they must also make a statement.
