To make pottery is my attempt to add something beautiful to this world, to create pieces that will inspire moments of pause and reflection in daily life.

Exploring atmospheric firings

 

I have come to love the play of fire over clay and the markings it leaves in its wake. Firing my work in atmospheric kilns like the soda kiln or woodfire kiln leaves a certain amount of the result to the grace of the fire. It is a good exercise in surrendering some control and in learning to anticipate what the fire will add to my pieces.
