I make ceramic objects for everyday use that capture a memory or a daydream of an exotic place. The time I have spent in the homes of Mexican immigrants and in the tiled rooms of Spain and Morocco has nudged my aesthetic toward old folk imagery and geometric patterns.  I work primarily in earthenware which uses less energy to fire and produces bright color in clay and glazes. My forms are sturdy and comfortable, designed for the daily grind but reminiscent of a faraway place.
