My greatest passion is to make functional art and to see others enjoy and use what I create. Pieces of art that people can interact with routinely while adding to the beauty of their live. Currently I am exploring the simplicity in everyday functional ware – cups, bowls, and plates that are more easily used. While a 20-inch platter can be admired during a dinner party, so can the cup you drink from every day. The use of slips and stencils to provide a texture and decoration is also of interest to me.
