feels like home

Welcome to my blog!

This is a wonderful moment for me, introducing my ceramics to friends, family and colleagues.

I am making things with my hands, once again. 

One thing I learned very quickly while working in clay, nothing is predictable.  I think that’s what I love most about it.  This has proven to be a revelation to me.  Since all of my pieces are individually shaped and formed, no two pieces are alike.  You’ll notice that there are no perfect squares or circles in my tableware.  My glazes can look completely different from piece to piece.  Anyone that knows me might find this shocking.   But it is true.  I love the unpredictable nature of it!

I would like to say a special thank you to a few people who were essential in putting my website and blog together.  My dear friend, Kim Osborne, who does all the design work for Elephant Ceramics and Elephant Props.  Philip Ficks, a very talented photographer, who was kind enough to photograph my ceramics.  And, Vivian Lui, who did the food styling for some of these images.  Thank you, all!  

I’ll be posting my newest work here, along with people, places and things that inspire and influence me.  Please let me know what you think!
