While working on my MFA degree in Photography at San Jose State University, I became interested in ceramics in general and pottery in particular. I have continued my explorations in clay after graduating in May, 2015, and found that handbuilding holds a world of possibilities when it comes to shapes, textures, and treatment of edges. For a while I worked with slabs and press molds and then I discovered pinching!
I believe in a dialog with clay, in listening for what it would like to express on any given day. All of my pieces are unique for a simple reason that no two conversations are ever the same. My pieces range from functional to fine art. Many of them are inspired by water.
