"The wheel thrown and hand built functional pottery that I make from red, earthenware clay is decorated using a layering technique combining slips, underglazes and paper stencils. Layering color with wide brush strokes allows me to create movement and texture as I build up the narrative stories. I am greatly influenced by folktales, fairy tales and world mythology."
