After years of working as a graphic designer where precision mattered so much, I truly love the organic experience of shaping clay into functional yet beautiful pieces of art. I am intrigued by how clay moves with each push and pull. Shaping and carving can shift the look and feel of each piece. Whether I have carved and shaped a piece for a few minutes, hours, or days, the look and patterns can never be replicated. The moment has chosen what the finished product will be. To me, it’s the most humbling and beautiful part of working with clay.
While my pieces are fully lined with non-toxic glaze, the outside is often left unglazed to show the humble beauty of the material.
