My work is about my obsession with the ceramic surface. I'm addicted to creating one of a kind surfaces by mixing materials directly into the clay body and layering glazes. In addition to those elements, I use salt firing to add an intangible element of mystery and surprise to the finished work. Because I can't predict how firing with salt will impact my work, I view the process as a way for me to give up control and allow something else to do its work to the piece. It's the alchemy that keeps me coming back time and time again.
