Artists Statement

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.
