My last semester in college I had an idea to make a teapot that reflected the feeling of a woman wearing a long flowing dress turning about...spinning with that dress floating off the ground, rippling. It took me a few months to find a way to capture that motion in the clay. Its creation was a breakthough for the way I would approach making pots. Looking to the outside world for inspiration in form and surface. Most of my pieces are thrown on a potters wheel then cut, squeezed or pushed into a new shape. This process is called altering and allows me to capture a sense of motion in the pots.
