P O T T E R Y
NOT FOR A PROFIT
For my more recent work, I have been focussing on my roots and what makes me, ME. When I think about my morals and who I am, I immediately think about the simple life on the farm and my childhood memories. I think about grain bins, corn, sheds, livestock, augers, fields, dirt and gravel roads, fences, tractors, family, and faith. I want to create work that's not only meaningful to me, but showcases the memories and love that went in to all parts of this lifestyle. All the type displayed on the buildings is my dad or grandpa's hand writing.
I strive to replicate the microcrystalline, atmospheric affects that develop in a ^10 firing but in a ^6 oxidation firing. All of my pieces are wheel thrown, altered, and decorated with slip. My latest work utilizes a range of cool hues which are applied on porcelain clay body with 4-5 glazes sprayed in an overlapping method.
