4A "My pitchers vary in height from 6 to 12 inches. I love to play with gesture in my pitchers, and they frequently take forms that are quite figurative. The spouts can become the elegant beaks of birds in flight, or the handles can begin at the shoulder of the pot and end on a flared hip. The play between the figurative and the abstract is what interests me about pitchers."

"Vase-making poses the problem of how to make a great pot that does not depend on touch for for its enjoyment. (Of course, placing the perfect flowers in the vase helps.) It is a challenge for me to make pots that are more to look at than to use. My vases are priced according to size - the smallest one is about 9" tall."
