About

Ceramic: Jupiter's Moon
Wheel thrown; pit fired

My works are mostly wheel thrown vessels. Occasionally, hand built clay embellishments accompany my pieces. I have worked with electric, reduction, and soda kilns to fire my vessels. Along with these modern methods, I have been firing with primitive techniques; Raku, pit, naked Raku, and combination Raku and sagar. I sometimes fire twice in a quick succession to capture the movements of flames on to vessels. I put several coats of terra sigillata on the pot to encourage certain base color. I experiment with different forms of pits or kilns, chemicals, and organic materials from my surroundings to enhance the color of my pieces but in the end, unpredictability of the dancing flames is what completes the vessel. All of my glazed vessels are dishwasher and microwave safe. However, ones created in primitive firing are for display only.
