While I’ve made several thousand clay vessels, I specialize in multi-sectional thrown floor pots with sculptural handles and surface variety. I’ve recently rediscovered the potential of slip coating and mixing of various clay bodies on the same work. These techniques were incorporated in a variety of thrown vessels and sculptural works. Firing methods included gas-fired and wood-fired reduction, which is an oxygen-starved atmosphere, allowing for darker body tone and unusual glaze effects.
