Inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi – the wisdom and beauty of imperfection -, I use the traditional method of handbuilding, and form and finish each piece individually allowing for differences in size and shape. The raw clay texture and the smooth finish of the glaze balance each other in a beautifully functional fashion.
I work in stoneware and fire in electric kilns to 1260º Celsius. My work is durable and functional and will happily embellish your daily life for years to come when handled with care. The cups can withstand boiling water, rinsing and scrubbing. They are fine in the dishwasher, but do not like the microwave.
