All of my pieces are one-of-a-kind, hand built ceramic. I use a variety of clay bodies, primarily earthenware and paperclay. I create the textures with different tools, some I’ve made myself, some I’ve purchased, such as rubber stamps, and some are found objects. These examples include a rubber trivet, a sink liner, or an interesting pattern on the bottom of a shoe. After construction, the pieces are bisque fired and finished with a variety of underglazes. I like experimenting with different underglazes and glazes to achieve bright, happy colors. The sculptures are then fired for a second time. Most of my sculptures have a matte finish. My work is primarily whimsical in nature, I like to make art that makes others smile!
