About My Work

The process for making my is often intuitive for me. The first year I seriously began making pots, just about every piece I made looked different in style and form. While they weren’t all necessarily bad, I was lacking a deeper connection to them. It almost felt as if they had come from someone else's hands. Over the course of that year I came to realize how important it was that my pots felt like an extension of myself. I’m a pretty grounded person, and I strive to feel present in my daily life. As I began to explore making pots that resonated with me, I found myself making rather simple forms with an unglazed exterior. This allowed for the groggy stoneware to immediately catch the attention of whoever’s holding it, bringing them into the present moment. The forms I choose are always simple as a way of keeping the pot timeless in hopes that it will be enjoyed for many years to come. With this in mind, I pay much attention to the foot, rim, and weight of my pieces to ensure optimum usability and longevity. Once thrown on the wheel and bisque fired, my pieces are minimally glazed and fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln. Even though I can be my own worst critic, each morning I’m drawn towards using my own mug. As I hold it and sip my coffee, I’m filled with gratitude that my hands were able to make it, and I achieved the deeper connection to my work that I was searching for.  

Want to shop my ceramics?
The best way to purchase my work is to find me at an in person show or contact me directly. I always list the shows I’m doing for the month in my instagram bio, so make sure to give me a follow to stay up to date if you live in Eastern NC. If this is not an option for you, don’t fret! Odds are, if you’ve seen me make it once, I can make it again. You can reach out via email or instagram to ask about what I have in stock and I will have it shipped directly to your door. If I dont have it already made, my lead time for made to order items is generally 4-6 weeks.
