Porcelain

My best pots have a soul. They are born; I do not "make" them.

Sunlight passing through a thinly veined petal gives me goosebumps. Colors on a spring hillside and a field of ripening corn breathe new life into me. I love the swirl of a tightly closed bud and the curve of a cresting wave.

My growing understanding of my materials opens me to the possibilities of developing forms and glazes. An inexpressible process takes place between my hands, my perception of the natural world, and my medium. I'm learning to let that happen.

The best pots sing. The song that's heard is a reflection of both the potter and the listener.

Relief Printmaking (wood And Linocuts)

I make wood and linoleum block prints of living things: animals, birds and people. Most of the images are natural shapes on white paper without backgrounds. I like relief printmaking, as a medium, for its strong, graphic quality. Recently, I've been painting on the paper either before or after printing on it, to add color. I also enjoy the physical process of carving the wood or linoleum blocks and pulling the prints.
