I came to pottery as an escape from my days cooking as a personal chef and discovered I'm truly a maker at heart.  Whether it's a pot of soup or a porcelain vase, my workday isn't complete until I have a physical object to show for it, and I now spend more time in the studio than the kitchen.  I focus on form and function, imagining how each piece will be used in someone's home. My goal is simply to make beautiful, useful pots.
