Artist’s statement

I enjoy making pinched forms as well as working with clay and I wanted to push that technique as far as I could using oxides, wax resist and glazes. I went through many firings to get the technical effects correct.

Influencing artists: Paulus Berensohn, Toshiko Takaezu, Japanese tea ceremony forms
