For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed entertaining myself and others with funny stories, and silly faces. As an adult I have matured, sort of, into a crafter of narrative pottery. I get to tell funny stories and make useful objects! My vessels aim to entertain while gaining access to several different settings by way of their functional, technical, conceptual, and formal qualities. By manipulating these qualities I produce cool, funny, interesting, functional, ceramic objects.
