My forms are heavily influenced by Japanese and Chinese ceramics.
The marks I make are inspired by the native designs of the American Southwest and by the German wood block prints of the early 1900s.
By combining my influences I am investigating the way marks and the piece merge, creating depth through implied horizon and atmosphere.
I want my pottery to slowly reveal to the user new insights within the abstract linear designs, the curves of the form, and nuances of the surface.
These pieces are for sale at the Holter Museum of Art here in Helena, Montana.
