My pots are simple in form and surface design with architectural references. I try to make balanced pots that would be nice to have in the home and hope they bring a little light to people's lives. I'm currently working with earthenware clay because I love the rich color of the clay body and have some areas of bare clay showing through on the surfaces of the pots. I'm using a printing technique called mono-print transferring to decorate the surfaces. I paint slip onto cut pieces of paper and then transfer them onto the pot creating a design on the surface of the pot. I love the clean lines and imperfections I can get from the process. I started out as a printmaker and have always gravitated to the qualities of hand printed images.
