Functional art to hold the ordinary and the precious

My love for the mountains of Colorado fuels my life and my artwork. That most basic gift of the earth, clay, transforms into an object bearing special purpose. A background in Biology inspires designs incorporating natural colors, motifs, and themes. I developed my ceramic craftsmanship by experimenting with form, function, material, and process. I am currently fascinated with thrown pieces and the organic form. Using understanding gained by investigating attributes of life brings meaning to my work and to my life. A major goal of my work is to provide function and utility with grace and beauty. Creating pieces that get used in day to day life generates a sense of belonging for my work and helps me to connect with people. The thought that my creations will hold both the ordinary and the precious in a person’s everyday life is gratifying. I hope you will look forward to using it.
