Creating this work is where I play the most. When I make these pots I feel like a painter laying down brushstrokes to create a compostion. But instead of paint I use slabs and coils of clay. Each piece is built intuitively as I try to establish a satisfying balance of shapes and textures that draw the eye around the piece which later I will embellish with stains and some glaze. Here I wait for the work to reveal its self which is the most fun.
