ABOUT THE WORK

I make wheel-thrown pottery. The work is inspired by the world we live in, including both the natural and the designed.

 

A native New Yorker, I studied at The Rhode Island School of Design and Teachers College, Columbia University. My work in surface design, fashion and designing and manufacturing a line of handbags and accessories has influenced my work in ceramics. My experience teaching at The Fashion Institute of Technology and Teachers College has been a foundation for my Wheel-Throwing and Surface Design Class at Echo Ceramics.

 

I have been developing my pottery practice for more than a decade. My pieces are developed to complement one another and work in flexible groupings. Functional work is intended to become part of daily life and be integrated in the environment and are also designed as stand-alone objects.

 

My artistic vision is continually evolving within my practice and the framework of our world, but it always intended to reflect a simple, clean and contemporary design aesthetic that is  hopefully timeless.
