My choice to make functional pottery is a way to engage individuals through all their senses, something that sets this art form apart from others. Referencing the vast history of ceramics I focus on those cultures that place a deep significance on functional objects and at times have elevated a mundane pot to sublime status. Forms developed from these sources tend toward the understated and the familiar. I typically use unglazed clay fired in a wood-burning kiln as the finish on a piece. Occasionally an austere glaze may be used to cover the form. In either case these pots will probably challenge the definition of beauty.
