“Functional pottery is an opportunity for a piece of fine art to form a personal relationship with someone. It is something that is loved and held, that wears with time and becomes a part of a person’s daily life. I apply illustration and narrative techniques to my ceramics as a vehicle for forging this relationship. My hope is that my art tells the story of where magic intersects with everyday life. “
