My ceramic practice is influenced by a cross-cultural mixture of East and West. The work combines elements of sly
humor and subtle rituals and tradition. Classical music has always played a major influence, both in my life, as well as
in my practice, especially the beautiful and harmonious sounds of choral music, which have provided a tremendous
inspiration to my creativity.
My vessels evolve beyond the utilitarian pottery tradition. I focus attention to sensuous shapes, exciting color
combinations and the heightened tension between surface and design. Some sculptures are comforting and playful;
others daring and provocative. I work with both terracotta and stoneware.
All of my pieces are wheel thrown and hand
built. Glazes are used for both color and texture. Random shapes and spheroid forms are positioned onto the surface,
as they intersect and overlap, creating a sense of visual and sensory excitement.
