I make pots that evoke elegance and sophistication. I am influenced mainly by French fashion from the period of the 18th century. The way a woman would have worn her corset or the curve of her hip made more apparent by her use of panniers. I strive to bring that sensual quality of fabric into clay. I often use patterns and flower motifs on my work to give the pots a elegant and fanciful appearance. I like to add color on top of pattern to give the pot a richness.
