My work is inspired by architecture and machinery found in the rural Midwestern landscape. Worn paint and surface deterioration reveal a warmth earned through time and use. This feeling I want to convey in my pots and hybrid functional-sculpture.

Pieces begin on the potter’s wheel and later hand altered and carved. Once dried and bisque fired they are coated with glaze and finish fired to 2,250 degrees Fahrenheit in an electric kiln.
