Colored Clay Pottery


Inspired by patterns in nature and a love of dance, I express through my work the rhythms and textures of movement. Carving into layered colored clay with a tool, rings of color reminiscent of ripples of water or wood grain appear. Throwing colored clay on the wheel, then cutting facets creates an agate effect. These methods of working with the clay result in a richness of color, flow and a multi-dimensional quality in my work. All of the items that I make are high-fired in a gas kiln and intended for daily use as well as for celebrations.
