There are a lot of stories here. In the saggar fired work there is the story of clay and fire and influences. It is story of learning to risk it all, to set up accidents of smoke and vapors and relish the serendipity that sings or move on. In the assemblages and installations, there are stories of grief, gathering, impermanence, migration and the human condition. There are stories of reuse and repurposing of materials with processes that imitate nature’s forces of change. There are, in the BreadPots and SpiritKeeper Urns, stories of a potter’s journey toward creating work that soothes peoples’ need for sustenance and comfort.
I hope to tell them fearlessly, with excellence conceived in practice, with integrity, and with purpose.
