Primal Platter

Wheel thrown stoneware, copper glaze

Artist Statement

I consider myself fortunate to spend my adult life making mudpies and setting fires, part of a traditionI cherish. To me, pots seem like seeds sown long ago which germinate and grow at unexpected times and in unexpected places. They emerge from the kiln, transformed, reflections of my own passage.
