Inviting, beautiful, and functional.  Most of the pottery I make is wheelthrown stoneware, or porcelain, oxidation fired to cone 6.  I strive to create pottery that can be used in everyday life, yet is unique and delightful.  There is something special and meaningful in using finely handcrafted pottery.  People are drawn to the colors, shape, functionality, or many times “just because it is their favorite.”  Sometimes people can’t put their finger on what it is that makes handmade goods so special.  I think it is a combination of care in craftsmanship, and positive energy that goes into every piece.  I feel that in this day and age, with so many factory goods out there, everyone needs to have at least a few finely handmade things.  Whether it is pottery, furniture, glassware, textiles, or one of the many other forms of fine craft.  Use it, enjoy it, let it enhance your life in little, yet meaningful ways.
