My work exists on the threshold between the influence of my hand and the beauty my materials and firing process confer on their own. I draw on the language of fine historical craft and functional pottery traditions, and imbue these familiar objects with a sense of wonder evoked by the effects of the woodfired kiln. I use a variety of decorative techniques including slip textures, rope-impressions, floral brushwork, and carved motifs to adorn the pots and allow them to enter into conversation with the fire. My training in woodfiring has offered me the working knowledge to harness the technique to my advantage, and the humility to know that the credit for its aesthetic boons can never be wholly mine; it is an elemental collaboration. The process of woodfiring offers the perfect venue for this dance of intention and chance.
