“The tension between opposites is a challenge to resolve, but when this tension is successfully balanced, electricity is generated in the hand and in the heart — it is an expression of the soul. When a maker knows who he is in relationship to his world, the object made with this existential awareness will carry this knowledge into the hand and heart of the user; with eyes closed essence is still apparent. 

Working mostly with porcelain , bronze glass and steel, I am carrying a tradition forward that traces back many thousands of years. I want the user to feel the wisdom of the past and promises from a future yet to unfold… with past and future in hand, one can more sweetly taste the present.

Everything I make must reflect my life, my philosophies and my love for what I do. I live and breath my work in every waking and sleeping moment. The object I make is what I am.”
