I first started glazing commercial bisqueware and tiles in 2005 when I wanted to design tiles for the showers in the house my husband and I planned to build.
I saw the bisqueware as new canvases on which to paint. Eventually, I became intrigued with the entire media and began to handbuild my own ceramic forms.
Sometimes I use slabs, in other cases I use molds, and slip cast. The challenge of combining color, line, and 3-dimensional form inspires me, and provides endless mental and construction exercises.
I work in low-fire earthenware, bisqued to 04, and usually fired to cone 05 after glazing.
