"Surface treatment and form blend in my pieces to the point that I blur the working distinction between clay and glaze."
I am a professional ceramic artist living and working in Seattle, Washington. My work is primarily decorative with a heavy emphasis on glaze effects. I fire to 2,300° Fahrenheit in an 80 cubic foot gas reduction kiln.
Nearly all of my pottery is food, oven and microwave safe. Each piece is handmade on the wheel or with slab construction in porcelain or stoneware.
