I have chosen the vessel as my primary mode of expression for several reasons. It is the perfect vehicle for me in my quest to bring form, function and surface into a harmonious relationship. I am motivated in my exploration of form to create challenging and demanding forms on the wheel; the challenge of integrating a painting onto a round, curved surface greatly heightens and enhances the experience.

Through the potter’s wheel, insights are gained regarding form; through painting, insights are gained into my self.
