Stoneware Pottery - Made in Medford

About the Artist

I make wheel-thrown pottery with the emphasis on functionality, the tactile experience, and the intention of contemplation.
These unique vessels made by my hands should feel right in yours - objects to enjoy while pondering life, the universe and everything.
I take my aesthetic inspiration from organic patterns in nature, the rustic beauty in decay, and the joie de vivre of serendipity.
I explore movement and texture through swirling spirals and carved surfaces to invite frequent use and ongoing discovery.
My work is heavily influenced by a bittersweet nostalgia, a sensitivity to ephemera, and an appreciation towards unobtrusive beauty.
