ceramic art is an exploration of imagery, color, and pattern on
utilitarian forms designed for daily use. The vessels are adorned with
decorative surfaces; layered slips and underglazes that are hand
painted, slip trailed, and incised. I have an affinity for using imagery
that is both accessible and ephemeral in nature; intended so that the
user can create their own personal connections with the piece in a
similar but distinct way, parallel to what was felt while making the
piece. I work with a locally supplied iron-bearing stoneware clay which
provides a warm, rust colored backdrop against the colorful graphic
surface, and fire to cone 5 in an electric kiln. I graduated from Alfred
University in 2009 with a BFA, and am currently a studio potter in
residence at Eye of the Dog Art Center in San Marcos, TX.
