I came to clay by way of sculpture. After the political upheaval of 2015-2016, I began making colorful, joyful pottery in earnest to combat the darkness of the news cycle. As the world seemed to become more and more polarized, I began to see pots as a way to bring people together. If you have beautiful serving pieces, aren't you going to want to invite people over for meals? Aren't you going to want to fill the pots and then the people with nourishment? Won't those bright colors and unique pieces help set the tone for optimism and cooperation? Potential mealtime conversations are the driving force behind my making pottery. I hope my work can spark a bit of joy whether the user is alone with  a cup of tea or surrounded by others at dinner.
