Clay peices are all built from thinly rolled slabs. Texture is added with stamps I have made that add another layer of thought to the piece; ladybugs, snowflakes, abstract patterns that evoke a pattern observed in nature are all some of the stamps I’ve utilized. I either fire my pieces two times, a bisque and glaze kiln, or I fire pieces one time in a “pitfire.” Pitfired pieces are colored with water colors to create transparency over the smudge effect of the sawdust firing within the pit. Some clay work is functional (mugs, plates, bowls, tiles), while some is purely sculptural. I re-cultivated a love of clay first discovered in elementary school while attending graduate school in the high desert atmosphere of Flagstaff, Arizona.
