I try to to throw pots that are pleasing to the eye and hand, are at least theoretically functional, and represent personal variations on timeless forms. I like to throw large pots, particularly large covered jars. Vessels, urns, pithoi, or amphorae — whatever you call them, I enjoy their sensuous form and sometimes powerful presence. My more functional work centers on dinnerware and mugs. As a coffee connoisseur and home coffee roaster, I try to throw mugs that are worthy of my coffee, and vice versa.
