My pieces are made with a stoneware clay body and are wheel thrown, hand built or a combination of both techniques. I do freehanded slip trailing, carving and sgraffito to decorate much of my work. Hand pulled handles and hand built appliqué are also used on many of my pieces. Nature inspires me, and I incorporate nature into my work both through images, as well as using things from nature directly in my work, such as a driftwood handle, or leaf impressions.
