My father and grandfather were teachers as well as makers. These men instilled in me the importance of creating thoughtful objects, cherishing the peace that comes from the process, and the honest pride that is derived from sharing it with those we love.
In my work as a ceramic artist I hope to impart both literally and figuratively these values into the pieces that I produce. I hope that my work reflects both the durability and quiet beauty of the rough hands that made them and the hands that created before them. I find great pride and purpose in continuing this tradition, as every piece that I make brings me closer to them.
