My ceramic pieces are made by coiling and slabbing. Pots and their form, which is sometimes asymmetrical, is the most important aspect of the work to me. I have always been interested in making pots supported by legs which are either coiled or slabbed although recently my works have had flat bases. Although some of my pieces look as if I have been inspired by the human form, it was not intentional.
After a thirty year break from potting, I am now experimenting with mixing porcelain with different clays; my surface techniques include burnished and smoked earthenware and stoneware glazes. However it is the form which is still the primary inspiration for my works.
