The days of playing in the mud were some of the best.  I have spent the last 6 years playing in the mud only to find that this is truly my love and passion.  I feel that clay is the perfect representation of life: It can be altered, reformed, manipulated, watered down, turned to dust or made into stone.  All of these things can happen when I choose them to.  I keep this in mind every time I sit down to "play in the mud".  Each piece of my work is created with the concept that art is one of a kind, but I want my work to be more than something to look at, I work towards the idea of: Beauty meets Functionality.

With every piece I make I want there to be a memory that what you hold doesn't exist anywhere else in the world.  I utilize the form, the glazes and the variations of firings to create combinations of color and running that is deep, rich and complicated.  My goal is to give the viewer something different to look at each time the piece is used.  At the same time I strive to create things that are functional.

I believe that art, much like life, is an ongoing experiment and one should never shy away from trying new things.  My goal is that my work reflects this belief.
