Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

All of my work is 100% handmade by me, and each piece is one of a kind. My ceramic work is primarily wheel-thrown from stoneware clays. I also do some hand-building and altering. I paint freehand, stencil and carve the pieces and inlay underglaze, then glaze the interior and exterior of the piece.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

When I found clay, I discovered a medium that allowed me to apply my background in graphic design and enthusiasm for Japanese folk art and textiles to tangible and practical handmade products. With clay, you can do functional or sculptural work (or a combination of both!) or even delve into architecture and interior design. There is never a dull moment or a feeling of having figured it all out. Clay is an exciting, never-ending learning opportunity with seemingly limitless possibilities.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

I spent the first 20 of my working years as a graphic and user-experience designer. I worked for companies such as Google,, Starbucks, Microsoft, and Nike, playing a prominent role in shaping some of the most popular products and applications of our time.
