My current body of work focuses on simplistic and bold surface designs on a warm earthen surface and are paired with cool toned glazes. Functionality is the driving force behind my forms. I am exploring the culture of drink ware in breweries, bars, and in the home. The surface designs of my pots reflect organic materials such as vines, seed pods, and flowers. They are also influenced by man made structures such as wrought iron gates and other decorative iron work.
