I make happy, modern ceramics. Every piece is perfectly imperfect, joyful, and shows the hand of its maker. I throw and hand-build, using mostly high-fire, white stoneware clay, which I fire in an electric kiln to Cone 6.

The contrast between the organic and the modern has always motivated and inspired me. I find strength in repetition, whether that be in the windows of a skyscraper, or the petal of a flower - the small building block is just as important as the overall view. And most of all? Much joy goes into the making of my work; smiles come free with purchase!
