I took a ceramics class at UC Berkeley and was hooked.
In the middle of the night I woke from a dream, sat up and said “Wait, the garage!” and my studio was born.
The urns are finished with stacked beach pebbles. I have admired stacked rocks in nature.
Fortuitously found when one is unsure of the way to go, stacked rocks mark a
path in an unfamiliar landscape.

My work on display with Maddie Leeds' work at rrevv gallery.
I make my own brass ribs to explore different curvature profiles. My forms are weighted at the bottom, middle, or top; each piece finding a way to hold its center.
I have found and become obsessed with the ageless black and white patterning of naked raku. I find the effect graphic and arrestingly beautiful: inky fractured drama embedded in the clay. This atmospheric firing is a collaborative dance with chance; I can control many aspects of the firing process, but never know what the end result will be.
Each piece is one of a kind.
