It is a personal object that is used day to day. Clay is displayed on the wall like a painting or as a freestanding sculpture. The world of tiles and architectural ceramics enhance our environment through its beauty and durability. The surfaces offer infinite possibilities. I love creating work with wonderful texture and color whether it has a designated function or whose function is purely aesthetic. I am at heart, a hand builder. I do sculptural work which is sometimes figurative, abstract, or a combination of both. I prefer natural looking surfaces which are layered and multifired. The use of a hand crafted item is a different experience than the use of a manufactured item.

There is a personal connection between the user and the maker.
