 "As a potter, I strive to make my work reflect the balance of life around me. It is important to me that the patterns are integrated into my forms, as I see around me.
I use a translucent porcelain body because it has a beautiful surface, and it can convey the qualities of light and shadow that I wish to express. After I throw my vessel on the potter’s wheel, I alter the form to set up a movement of soft shadow. When the porcelain is leather hard, I carve patterns to add energy and counterpoint. I fire my work to cone 10, where the porcelain becomes non-porous and translucent, and one of the hardest surfaces known to man."
