I work with white stoneware and porcelain. Most of my pots are thrown on the potter’s wheel and often hand-built elements are added.

I enjoy decorating my work with lines, patterns, and colors. When the pots are leather-hard I use an exacto knife to draw lines and inlay black underglaze. After the first bisque fire I use tape or patterns that I cut out of vinyl-sign to block parts of the pots and paint with colored underglazes. I then bisque the pots again and glaze them, often using wax and latex resist.

The pots are fired to cone 9 in an electric kiln.
