My work is based on observation of the world around me. I am inspired by the brilliant sunshine of Arizona and the way the sunlight reflects off all that it touches.
One of the most rewarding parts of working in the clay medium is all the mystery that clay provides.
Each time you throw a pot on the potter's wheel, your mind relaxes and you're able to almost meld with the spinning clay. The fire has its own effect on the piece and the maker is soon an observer as the flame does is magic.
