do not know

to be useful, or

believe to

be beautiful.”

Artist’s Statement:

 

I have always been fascinated by clay.  I have been collecting ceramics since my early adulthood and love the form and possibility of objects made with clay. 

I moved to Vancouver Island in 2006. In 2009 I began formal instruction in clay with Muriel Sibley, Wintercreek Pottery, a local potter.  I took to clay quite quickly and had my own studio within my first year of throwing. I have continued to explore clay with a variety of mediums, clay bodies, firing techniques and instructors.

My pieces fall generally in the functional range. I do a limited range of art pottery pieces in Raku, tile and specialty fired styles (soda or salt)

My influences are based in Antique Asian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese, Ceramics and Porcelain.  I am lucky to have experienced and collected the works of Judi Dyelle, Robin Hopper, Harlan House and Kayo O'Young.  Their beautiful work inspire me as I strive to create my own voice in clay. 

My full time career is Clinical Social Work. I work with adults and children who want a better life.  Throwing clay helps me centre myself and express a different form of my creativity. Recently I have begun using clay with some of the children I work with. Clay is a perfect medium for kids to express and discover a different part of themselves. It also opens up a new therapeutic conversation. Clay is a great medium when working with people who have experienced trauma.

I strive to make my work both functional and beautiful.  Throwing clay is a process that encourages me to slow down and become centred. Pieces are meant to be used everyday and are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.
