I really enjoy the technical aspects of any of the mediums I work in, and ceramics is no exception. Glaze application is a big focus of my artistic practice. I love dark glazes, and I look to create a lot of contrast with those glazes. When I'm not making functional ware, I enjoy creating whimsical pieces like the fish vase you see below.

Q: Favorite clay?
A: Dragon fruit or a good procelain. I've also recently started using Balcones Dark which you can buy at Ruby! I really love it!
Q: Can't live without it tool?
A: Sponges of course, but I also love the Mudshark from Mudtools. I have several!
Q: How do you hope to add to or change your artistic career moving forward?
A: I hope to be able to make more sculptural work. It's something I haven't been able to make time for recently, but I plan to change that this year.
