This tiny collection is an example of process. From sketch to finished piece and all the distractions in between. My actual desk was moved into the gallery to give the audience a sense of how I go about my creative process. 


This collection is rooted in texture and organic shape. I began each piece with a simple pinch-pot form, then added bits of clay to the inside and outside of the pots to begin the move upward. This was a lesson in subconscious making, letting the clay dictate the direction my pots moved.  I used various bits of nature such as bark, rocks, seeds, and my own hands to create the surface. The pieces were left unglazed and fired in a smokeless wood fired kiln for around 16 hours. For those long hours I fed the fire that would solidify my pieces which solidified my connection to them and the process of making.
