My work is Shape, Color and Design expressed in clay. I love the natural world around me in Down East Maine, and inspiration from it appears in many ways in my pottery. However, I also love Arts and Crafts and Art Deco designs, and these are often combined with elements from my natural world: fir trees, flowers, waves, rocks, sunsets, the moon. Working with these interactions is an ongoing and fulfilling adventure. When my pots have a synthesis of form and decoration, for me, that moment is one of magic and joy.
