Pottery is has become a means of self-exploration. I ask myself what I want to accomplish, what are my goals in regards to my art? And my personal goals may differ but they definitely parallel. Quite simply I want the beholder, whether it is me or another, to smile when looking at my work. This holds true from the whimsical sayings that brighten my day to the more intricate luminary carvings. To live is to create and to create is to love.
