Vases and Pitchers

I first started glazing commercial bisqueware and tiles in 2005 when I wanted to design tiles for the showers in the house my husband and I planned to build.

I saw the bisqueware as new canvases on which to paint.  Eventually, I became intrigued with the entire media and began to handbuild my own ceramic forms.

Sometimes I use slabs, in other cases I use molds, and slip cast.  The challenge of combining color, line, and 3-dimensional form inspires me, and provides endless mental and construction exercises.

I work in low-fire earthenware, bisqued to 04, and usually fired to cone 05 after glazing.
