Artist Statement 

I create ceramics for everyday use that brings value to a traditional home life. My work is decorative and functional. Enjoying the familiar feel of your favorite teacup in your hands as the highlight of your morning. Serving your family and friends meals on beautiful ceramic pieces enhances the dinning experience. My ceramics are completely handmade and every piece is unique. You will find that each piece has a slight variation in design and dimension, which adds to their charm. The knowledge that someone, somewhere, is eating from ceramics that I made gives me the motivation to create more.
