Path and Inspiration I started my ceramics journey in handbuilding, taking adult education classes. I thoroughly enjoyed learning and exploring this artistic discipline, particularly using different clays, slips and glazes. I progressed to wheel throwing, which has now become my preferred method of making. It soon began to feel that a weekly class was not enough to develop my passion for ceramics, so after finding a local studio to join, I am now able to dedicate more time to my art and hone my skills.
Process and Practice The majority of my work is wheel thrown, working primarily in stoneware clays. I enjoy combining slips underneath glazes to create different effects as well as using simple glazes that highlight the natural beauty of the clay bodies. My work is electric fired.
I hope that even though most of my work is functional in form, it also performs in a decorative capacity, bringing interest and joy to the owner.
