My mission as a ceramic artist is to continually explore alternative firing techniques. The processes of Raku and Barrel firing allow for much experimentation and create a sense of adventure in firing pottery. My focus is to create graceful ceramic forms where I allow the power of the flames to produce their spontaneous effects. These firing techniques tend to create pottery that is left to chance and can yield fantastic and exciting results. Many of my greatest influences in design come from the natural world, and assert the idea of a pottery surface that is meant to create a “Mysterious Presence”.
