I have always been aware of the connection between each form I create and the environment it will exist in.  I consider the homes it will inhabit and the hands that will hold it - the relationship between the vessel and its user inspires my forms and surface.  Deceptively simple objects offer sophisticated moments where fingers discover defined texture between exposed clay and art deco themed glazes, lips rest on a smoothly glazed portions of otherwise bare rims, and thumbs settle into a soft indentation found on a hand pulled handle.  These intimate moments offer quiet contemplation in our otherwise busy lives.
