I strive to create finely crafted items made from clay that serve a functional purpose while also summoning an emotional longing and/or memory for the holder. I hope a simple, finely crafted clay piece, will enhance a person’s experience as they go about their daily rituals using it for beverages, food etc.
My overall design choices come from recognizing what will arouse a longing for a place or memory from an individual. For now botanical designs have dominated as I market my pottery to regions containing Mountains, Streams and Lakes. Although I am not sure what might be next to motivating a new series, I am confident that my intention to create a series that evokes a positive emotion will satisfy my and my customer’s needs.
