It is curious to me how affecting a simple object can be. Even devoid of history or personal connection, an object can be compelling, haunting, exciting. Making pots has become my expression of these feelings. The larger vessels I build have less to do with food and dishes and more to do with generic containment. With them I am exploring line and form and composition. I strive to create quiet, powerful, minimal pots that speak to the feelings of reverence I have for all interesting objects.
