Just the Facts

 

Clay

Mid-range Grolleg porcelain

 

Primary forming method
All of my pots are thrown on the wheel. Some are altered. All are assembled from two or more thrown parts.

 

Favorite decorating method
I cut apart, and then reassemble, my pots to draw lines that reinterpret my forms, inside and out. People often tell me I’m crazy for doing it, but knowing how this process can transform the mundane into the extraordinary, I think I’d be crazy not to.

 

Primary firing method
Cone 6-7 electric with a slow cool

 

Favorite tool
I’m never without my trusty hardware store retractable box cutter with a snap-off blade. I use it as most people typically would use a fettling knife
