|My pots are handbuilt, pinching up each layer of rolled coil to build form. Pinching is a slow, rhythmic process that allows time to envision a piece while working, and the resulting texture is intrinsic to the building process. I approach the surface of a pot as a painter, brushing colored slips over the raw terracotta surface, layering multiple glazes after bisquing. I aim for the speed, the pulse, and the tempo of making to be revealed in the pot.|
