All pottery emerges from the confluence of earth, water and fire. It is the gradual discovery of the infinite variation and chance combination of these elements that inspires me to explore the boundaries of this ancient craft.
After a long career as a self-employed graphic designer, I felt the pull to explore new horizons. Having a lifelong preference for expressing ideas through my hands, and wanting a medium that would challenge me on many levels – physically, intellectually and creatively – I began playing with clay in a local artist’s studio. Interest quickly became passion. Feeling the need to expand my horizons, I joined the Waterloo Potters’ Workshop where I’ve been mentored by experienced potters and participate in workshops with excellent clay makers and artists.
The joy of clay is that I’ll never “know it all”. The clay and the artist, both, are a never-ending work in progress. This website provides a venue for tracking my technical and creative evolution, and creating a dialog with those who enjoy my work.
