I enjoy cooking and eating and I love to make functional pottery that people will use in their kitchen every day. Lately I am having fun making large serving platters that can go from oven to table to dishwasher. When whimsy strikes me I make piggy banks. Not so practical in the kitchen, but still a practical vessel that someone will use regularly.
I fire most of my functional ware in an electric kiln. Experimenting with glazes and glaze combinations is a huge part of what I do. There is nothing better than when I find a combination of glazes that compliments my forms.
I am so grateful that the Comox Valley is home to such natural beauty and so many amazing potters – both of which inspire me daily.
