Creating a home – shaping a piece of clay – constructing a life – with each process there is the opportunity to infuse the intentions of calm, connection, and clarity. The clear purpose of a bowl – the proxy for hands cupped together holding, carrying, containing that which will nourish our bodies and our minds. My mind and hands shape each piece with those intentions and as the pots move out into the world, my touch is extended to the person who takes that piece into their own home to use. From my story to their story, a story continued. The development, creation, and sale of my pots is my play, my extroversion expressed, my desire to please others, my path to understanding many things.
