Hand-built, Raku fired ceramics

My work is driven by an obsession with clay and it's versatility. I make ceramic forms and vessels which are hand-built and Raku fired. I became addicted to Raku because of the direct involvement with each stage of the process. The pots absorb and reflect the intense drama of the firing.
Small groups of related forms are hand-built simultaneously, the slow and contemplative pace of coiling allowing for considered developments and refinements to be made. Each stage of construction enable intuitive and selective marks and textures to occur. Each piece is completely unique.
