Artist Statement:

A unifying thread in my work is the exploration of pattern as ordered chaos on my surfaces, constructing layer upon layer of colorful spinning circles, flipping flowers, meandering vines, industrial grids, and geometric planes.

Red clay as the skin of the pot provides my work with a richness to each of the layers of wax engobe, and underglaze and connects me to histories from around the world.  Pattern on red clay is a vehicle for a personal exploration of identity, history, and materiality. Sharing this love for clay both as an artist and educator allows me to nurture a love of the arts and of the handmade in myself and others.
