My pieces are made mostly on a wheel. When I start with a ball of clay, I close my eyes, center it, then let my mind do the work. In most cases, I have no set design in mind. It's as if each piece of clay has a mind of its own--telling my fingers what to create.
However, I understand that you sometimes want something specific. A mug, bowl, pitcher, plate. That's not a problem. I can be structured and create that special piece that you specifically want!
I hope that when you see that piece of pottery that grabs your attention, it makes you want to pick it up and enjoy the way it feels. Oftentimes, someone will say that coffee always tastes better in a hand thrown clay mug! Please contact me with that special request.
By trade, I am a Graphic Artist and own a Graphic Design Company in Tiffin, Ohio. I have always been in the arts, mostly commercial. There is something about good design that makes me happy. I tell my clients that image is everything. Whether it's the way you dress, the way you decorate your home home, your first impression is always "image."
