My work always begins on the wheel. My attention to detail and finishing are a signature quality of my work.
Smoke-fired, Cone 6 glazed functional and incised blackware.
The smoke-fired vessels are slipped and burnished to fuse the clay, helping to seal the surface and produce the fine sheen. For decorative purposes they are smoked in combustible materials such as sawdust, pine cones and leaves. The leaves transfer their carbon to the porous pots resulting in a photo-like image. As the artist I can influence the outcome but I cannot control the spontaneity of the firing, resulting in truly unique pieces.
Born, raised and worked in Vancouver in the graphic arts field before running away to the woods of the BC interior where I became a potter in 1992. I enrolled in Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design for their summer ceramics program, read everything I could find on ceramics and attended many workshops with internationally known potters.
