In the past, I might have suggested that the world didn't need another person making pots. Yet here I am, decades after being bitten by the clay bug, remarking "cool mug" when I open my kiln. To pour so much energy into my craft and have that come through in the work so that others want a little piece of that joy for themselves, is nothing short of miraculous!
In the studio, I base my decisions around what I enjoy doing most and let those processes dictate my forms. After years of over complicating my surfaces, I now Iet the color and texture stand on its own and it finally feels right. I want my work to be well used, not up on a high shelf. If use leads to a broken pot, then consider it an opening to add a new piece to your collection, whether one made by my hand or not. (she/her)
