Artist Statement

It's all about color balance and pattern. I spend countless hours preparing color mixes, testing what works, and what doesn't. I believe in functional objects more than high art. If I make a vessel, not matter how richly colored, I want it be to functional. If I am not comfortable tossing a few lemons in it, and place it on the dinner table for it to be used and seen, then I have failed.
