My work is executed in Cone 6 Stoneware Clay. Pieces are wheel thrown and hand built. Work is functional as well as decorative. I'm influenced by Art Deco and Art Neuvo as well as Frank Lloyd Wright. Images are applied using a tape resist methods. Underglazes are used for the color work and then the main glaze is sprayed on and after the is removed a final clear is sprayed on the piece. Pieces are then fired to Cone 6 in an electric kiln.
