I hope to direct the pots to find an intimacy with a moment; the moment of touch, frozen in time by the heat of the kiln or the moment of use. I would like to make pots to enter into a person’s life and to heighten an awareness of time and elevate an experience of place. Functional pots have the ability to be a part of a home in an intimate way, adding a sense of character and individuality to the daily habits of eating and drinking. Pots can participate in and affect their environment, transforming the act of buttering toast into a ritual or remembered experience. It is my hope that each pot brings its own unique experience to the user and offers a moment of reflection and joy.
