I dig most of the materials I use to make and glaze my pots. My pots are fired in a large 850 cubic ft wood kiln. I enjoy the hard work and it leaves no part of the process separated from me. I do not try to control my materials, rather I try to understand them. From digging the clay to firing the kiln I put all my effort into creating pots that have a powerful presence. It is important to me to create pots that are timeless but reflect the culture and times in which I live.
