  • These stunning mugs are approximately 4.5" tall and 2.5" wide. Dishwasher and microwave safe!

  • I produce six bodies of work a year. Each body of work offers me the opportunity to explore new ideas and refine existing ones. I’m intrigued by the marriage of form and decoration.  In striving to integrate these in each pot, I have the opportunity to create work that is both timeless and modern. I work with stoneware. My pots are thrown, thrown and altered, or hand-built. To achieve visual depth in my patterns, I employ five elements. Four of these--wax resist, latex, dipping, and brushwork--are applied to bisqued pots. The pots are then high-fired in a heavy reduction atmosphere with the intent of trapping carbon in the base glaze. It is trapped carbon that is the fifth and random element. Each pot is designed to serve a functional purpose and is compatible with modern appliances.
