consists of the throwing of common pottery forms that are then assembled
into new, unique teapots, pitchers, vases and decanters. I work in a very
traditional manner as all my pieces are hand thrown or slab built because
first, I love the tactile, hands on, physical manipulate of the material,
but also I am fascinated with the strong historical link to the craft
of functional pottery.
In my work I struggle
between all the contrasts that plague the modern craft artist: old and
new, modern and contemporary, functional and aesthetic, art and craft.
I live in a city but have the deep coastal rainforest as my back yard.
I have an attachment to the earth and its fragile nature but love modern
amenities. I struggle with my love of simplified, functional, hand-made
pottery but love the unique object as well. It is within these parameters
and struggles that I strive to maintain a grasp on the elements of function
but I am compelled to create a unique object that pushes the limits of
"I like curves, all types of curves.
But the one I am constantly searching is that of surprise, of the unexpected."
"The unexpected curve is the one that makes us follow it with our
eyes through all its extension, because we know it can change at any moment."
