Although trained as a painter, I work with clay. I throw thin porcelain cups and bowls...often I draw into them... I like to work with clay slabs....I use ceramic pencil and crayon, metal oxide, engobe, my hands and wooden tools...Clay is my canvas...

Oxides dripping, colors shadowing under earlier colors, glaze cascading down walls.... The act of throwing, the soft porcelain rising between my fingers, thin and wavering walls...fluid...knowing the moment to stop.
