Traveling continues to broaden my world and helps to revitalize my ceramic work. Journeys inspire questions about cultural differences/similarities, historic events, political trends, aesthetic forms and traditions. Unique textures, colors and patterns are documented through my photography. I try to seek out regional cuisines which circle back to the objects where we receive our nourishment. While my ceramic endeavors sometimes gravitate toward a more conceptual edge, I also enjoy creating works for our everyday life. It is my hope that these creations in a small way, enhance those lives they encounter.
