Botanical and floral influences are the basis for my work’s inspiration…influence of my heritage–German, Irish and Cajun French, of farm memories and middle-class life in Jackson, MS, in the ‘70s all rolled up, makes me who I am.

Textures are specific to my work and are achieved primarily through slip trailing and stamping. Stamps are carved by my hands. Pieces are made of stoneware body using slabs to form pots, as well as throwing pieces on the wheel from a lump of clay. Colored and natural terra sigillatas, glazes and underglazes are applied at different times throughout the process to add texture and color. Most of the surface decoration exhibits a natural or botanical motif. Each piece is one of a kind, and expresses a personality of its own.

I’m thankful to be able to create things others might enjoy.
