'Gliding Tpot'

Textured with Sardinian cactus
and driftwood from Vancouver Island.
Another two and one-half dimensional form.

'Yellow Salish Sun'

side 2  
 height 13 inches
texture and applique

Texture fascinates me. I use natural objects such as seedpods, bones, lichen, and dried cactus skins, often mingled with bits and pieces from my obsolete computer, to create texture on slabs. It’s fun to see high tech markings dance in tandem with organic texture and come alive in the material of one of the oldest technologies on earth.

'Abstract'

"Bowl"

Like a sort of Dr. Jekyl and Mrs. Hyde I alternate between the quietness of throwing classic forms on my potter’s wheel and the excitement of hand building vessel forms which lack the roundness we expect from vessels. I call these playful pieces 2 ½ dimensional and enjoy them most when their gestures give them personalities.



"Still Life"



"Miss Clavel"



"Sassy Fat Bowl"



"Heron-bone Pitcher"

Texture fascinates me. I use natural objects such as seedpods, bones, lichen, and dried cactus skins, often mingled with bits and pieces from my obsolete computer, to create texture on slabs. It’s fun to see high tech markings dance in tandem with organic texture and come alive in the material of one of the oldest technologies on earth.



"Virtual Pitcher"
textured with the motherboard
of my obsolete computer



"Alderboard Teapot"



"Fraternal Jugs"



"Timberdoodle Queen"
textured with the inside of the bark
of a fir tree
