I love to work in series, creating a body of work with images that come from a theme, or recurring preoccupation I have. Most of my work is made from white stoneware and porcelain clay using a variety of forming techniques, including wheel-throwing, slab-building and slip-casting. Strong clean forms, with soft corners and planes are great for experimentation with line-drawing, texture and color. The surface is created by incising and carving, and brushing, stenciling, and trailing slip. The glaze and underglaze materials vary the line quality and colors. By applying the glazes to selected areas with a brush, some areas can be shiny, while others remain softly matte.
