For thirty- five years I have fired my stoneware and porcelain utilizing wood as my fuel source. I have flirted with other means of finishing my work but always return to the mystery imparted by flame and ash. I create a form with clay, and then in partnership with the forces of fire and what seems like some medieval alchemy, returns the clay to rock. It is a process that I can influence but never completely control. This sometimes-torturous dance between design and destiny breathes life into my work which exceeds my own imagination’s capacity.
