Lakeshore Pottery, Monroe, GA
After taking a pottery class for fun, I fell in love with the idea of having a lump of clay in front of me that could be become anything. It would be unique in all aspects. I like to work with color. Therefore I primarily work with white stoneware. I work both on the wheel and/ or hand built.
Many of the pots are a combination of both. I enjoy making each piece different through carvings, stamps, details and adding small additions. Using a slow cool down process in glazing adds to the uniqueness of each pot. My pots are made for the enhancement of the home and the pleasure of cooking and serving food.
The functional and sculptural pieces that I make are for others to enjoy handmade and artistic forms in their lives. Every pot made is considered an individual that can be combined with other similar colored pieces to become a family of unique pots. This uniqueness reminds the user that the pot is an artistic handmade object.
