Each pottery piece is handmade, wheel-thrown and functional stoneware that can be used every day in the kitchen and in your home. From start to finish... each piece and the glazes used are created by my own hands.
The landscapes, flowers and color scheme of Monet's paintings have become an inspiration for my work.
Different glazing finishes are used to create a variety of complimenting styles. From a basic hand dipped glaze (blues and greens) using overlapping glazes for contrast, underglaze painted flowers on top of a porcelain slip used as a canvas, and real imprints of ferns found in my garden all create my own personal Monet garden.
Each piece I create has a journey starting with a vision and a lump of clay. In my home studio I have the pleasure of creating pieces from start to finish with each item beginning on the wheel, hand built or the combination of the two.
