The Pottery

About My Pottery

I came to my work in clay through meditation, and my original inspiration was the form as a holder of space, or liquid, or even tea …

I have continued to be moved by the unique properties of the clay form itself – its ability to be shaped to my whims, to be cloaked in colors vibrant or muted, to be turned to stone or blended to porcelain, to be changed from an impermanent glob of clay platelets into one of the most permanent forms ever created by human hand. It is truly amazing.

When I add to this inspiration my love of painting with wild abstraction in color, or honing my craft through simple unadorned forms, a unique blend of form and function is realized!

All of my work is ‘one of a kind’ in its true sense. There is no production in my pottery, even though at times I can be very productive. Each piece shows where I am in my process of discovery, and I continue to look forward to where the clay will lead me next.

A history of my work and some of my favourite pieces can be seen in the Gallery on this site and, of course, you can shop more recent items from my online ‘pot shop’ as well.

We have recently moved to Tara, Ontario — not far from Port Elgin, Southampton, and Sauble Beach.  It’s a beautiful country-side location, on water (the Sauble River), and my new show room should be up and running by the Fall of 2018.  I’ll be doing workshops (maybe even whole weekend events) once I’m set up.  Right now, we’re still unpacking!

Looking forward to meeting you!
