Artist Statement:
I work in porcelain clay to create handmade ceramics that merge function, craft and art.  The white surface of the clay is a wonderful canvas for my black and white patterns, whimsical motifs and carved surfaces.  Inspired by connection: my hand to yours, cup to lip, nourishing, sharing, sustaining.
