Eating and drinking are deeply integrated into
our rituals and traditions, and the ware we are
using for it is an important part of our culture. With
that in mind, I aspire to create pots that are
aesthetically pleasing and useful. I like the surface
of the ware to be richly decorated but pleasant to
the touch, and the forms to be comfortable to use.
