I have been creating, producing and, selling my ceramic work for the last 8 years. After learning basic throwing skills I started carving on my pots as a means of decoration. Soon the carving became the focal point of my work. I continued to hone my technical skills by making functional pieces to sell while taking classes with well-known ceramic artists. I have experience in wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques. I have worked in a wide variety of surface embellishment and sculpture including carving, wax erosion and under-glazing. I have worked with several types of stoneware, porcelain and raku clays. I have glazed and fired work at cone 05, 5, 10 and raku.
