I am a potter currently living and working in Lancaster, SC and making primarily functional work. I am interested in the interaction of opposites and this is reflected in my work through use of black and white, unglazed surfaces next to glazed surface areas, shiny surfaces next to matte surfaces, textured surfaces mingled with smooth surfaces, voluminous curves against flat planes.
My work has its roots in the American studio pottery tradition, but the finished look has a contemporary edge. My goal is to make pottery that is elegant enough for a formal setting, but is sturdy and durable enough for everyday use. I place a great deal of value in functionality as well as aesthetics and strive to provide my customers with beautiful pottery that will used and treasured for years.
