"My work is based on observation of the world around me.  I am inspired by the brilliant sunshine of Arizona, and the way that sunshine reflects off all that it touches.  My Raku employs the various hues that copper gives when it reflects the light.

I also enjoy the process of making clay pieces.  The large vessels are challenging while they are being made, glazed and fired.  Each one seems unique to me, as I have to put my energy into them in a more intense way than a small pot.

One of the most rewarding parts of working in the clay medium is all the mystery that clay provides.  Each time you throw a pot on the potter’s wheel, your mind relaxes and you're able to almost meld with the spinning clay.  The fire has its own effect on the piece and the maker is soon an observer as the flame does its magic on each piece."
