Textured Dark Patina Oval




The Starbird Pottery
Ceramic Lamps

I’ve been making pots for 20 years. I make functional stoneware for everyday use in the home. My work is influenced by my love of the outdoors and observing nature. I enjoy adding texture to my pieces and witnessing the interaction of the melted glaze on a pot’s surface.  I am continually surprised by those surfaces as each firing gives new and unexpected results. I love when my pieces are woven into one’s daily rituals, connecting the user of an object with its maker. Being able to see the maker’s hand in each piece grounds us and invites a sense of place and belonging, something I believe we all yearn for.
