Clay / New Iberia, LA

Artist Statement

I am a small one person studio creating hand made porcelain and stoneware. My work is both handbuilt and wheel thrown. The pots are altered and impressed with fern, flowers and metal objects for decoration and fired in an electric kiln to Cone 6. The commercial glazes and ioxides I use are all applied by dipping or brushing. The glazes are food safe, however, any pots painted with oxides are not food safe and can only be used for display. My pottery is constantly changing. Spring & Fall seasons influence my designs and colors, as do browsing pottery magazines and books. I am always looking for new techniques and designs to incorporate into my own forms.
