Since my first exposure to clay in a class at the Greensboro NC Cultural Center over 25 years ago, I have been in love with pottery making. My background is in graphic art and when I found myself in front of a computer all day instead of the traditional "cut and paste" method, I realized that I didn't like what I was doing anymore. I decided to devote all my efforts to working with clay to satisfy my "hands-on" need.
My current work has evolved from my attempts to explore accident and chaos. Letting the process and material show me where to go.
I work with low-fire red clay slabs that give me a two dimensional field to color and texture. Then the slabs are formed into cylinders, boxes or bowls. The soft drapery feeling from the slab is fixed when the clay is exposed the heat of the kiln. As a statement against the mass production of modern life, each piece of my pottery is created as a unique, imperfect object linking the maker to the user.
