Pottery-making clears out the cobwebs in all the corners of my mind. Each piece expresses my love of home and the ocean. I had to be open to the possibilities in order to find my way to clay. Now that I am at home with it, I can explore all those corners of my mind.
Crafted by hand, my pottery has gentle curves and generous proportions accented by the colors of the ocean. When my family and friends come together for a home cooked meal my serving pieces are designed to soothe and calm their spirit.
Hand-painted traditional sailor art tattoo images on my pots include: the nautical star, anchor, swallow, rooster & pig (good luck symbols), dragon, and ships wheel. You can hear the sound of the ocean in my thrown and altered seashells.
