I create pottery pieces that function well with simple lines. This emphasis of functionality and simplicity might have its genesis in my upbringing in the stark beauty of Saskatchewan. It was there that I began working with clay in highschool and began my twenty-year career as a studio potter. I am interested in the tactile experience that people have using my work - it is important to me that a mug feels as great in the hands as it does on the lips. I love being a maker of things that bring people joy to look at and that they love to use.
