Tableware

I love making pots! There is something inherently satisfying about making something that has a practical use. Logically, that satisfaction must be part of our evolutionary inheritance, for survival may depend on the competent crafting of tools, food storage containers, shelters etc.
I choose to use porcelain because of its fine grain, which makes it excellent for detail work, and because of its responsiveness to colour.
I am also drawn to the intimate nature of pottery, the feel of it in our hands, its use in our homes and our daily lives. My surfaces are very active, but I still aim for a high degree of functionality, and for this reason, generally do not throw paper-thin walls with delicate handles and knobs. I prefer something a bit more robust to withstand and encourage repetitive use, seeking a balance with the visual elements.
