My work is inspired by my wood-firing experiences. The process of fire and ash coalescing to create a rich, varied surface is captivating. Yet the desire to create unpredictable surfaces can be done in any firing atmosphere. I’ve been able to achieve the qualities of wood-firing in my electric kiln by relying on glaze choices and application methods. By combining the multiple sprayed glazes with spiraled slip, I strive to strike a balance between spontaneity and control.
