Challenged by the fragility and delicacy of my pieces, which require patience, care and tact, the soft, slippery, sliding sensation of the clay on the wheel fulfills me as patterns emerge through inspiration, pulse and concentration. Each stage of creation and development, from the original form to its firing, is critical, demanding much dedication, determination and effort.

Despite the necessary repetition and apparent simplicity of each part of a piece, the complete work brings forth sensations of strength and energy, which contribute to the meticulous assembling of the whole structure.
