Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
my work is wheel-thrown and altered or slab-built stoneware and porcelain. Much of my work is unglazed and I use some non-traditional finishes on my wall pieces because, why not?! All of my vessels, and anything that even hints at being used to hold food, have a food safe black satin or clear, gloss glaze. I use a lot of kanthal wire in my work. The wire has a high melt so is added into wet clay as part of the construction and goes through all firings as part of the piece. In some of my newest pieces, the wire is used structurally taking place of areas of clay.
