I began studying pottery in 2006, and quickly set up my own
studio. Most of my work is created in porcelain and is usually wheel-thrown, but
can also be extruded or hand built. All of my pieces are unique, not mass
produced using slips and molds. Therefore, just like people, some pieces may not
look "perfect", but then they weren't meant to be.
All of my creations are:
The exception to the above are those creations glazed using the Raku (Ra-ku) process.
A Raku glaze firing is considered a low-fire process, and as such does not reach
the higher temperatures required for the glaze to fully mature. Pieces created
with this process are inherently not food safe and do not hold liquids. Safe to the touch yes, but not
food safe. The chemicals in food have a way of making things leach out that
shouldn’t be ingested. And we won’t talk about the fact that Raku began as part
of an ancient Japanese Tea Ceremony. Let’s just say there are reasons we live
longer today. Raku items are meant to be admired, not used. All
Raku creations are clearly marked on this web site.
I began mixing some of my own glazes and experimenting with colorants in
2007. Links to some of my work are at left. Along with most items is the name of the glaze(s) used. If multiple glazes were used, the outside glaze is listed first
followed by the inside glaze. If it's a glaze I created, it's name begins with
When you look at my pieces, you may notice that several pieces may have the
same glaze but don't look the same. Many factors affect the way the glaze looks
after it's been fired. Among them:
was the piece made from porcelain or stoneware
origin of the glaze ingredients
whether or not the glaze was well mixed when the piece was glazed
whether a thin coat or a heavier coat of glaze was used
placement of the piece in the kiln when it went through its glaze firing
the other pieces in the same vicinity during the glaze firing
