Clay is an amorphous material that takes the shape of the space it inhabits. Clay may, then, take the shape of anything in nature or imagination. It is this ability to become anything that makes clay an exciting material to work with. There are no limits to the possibilities of what form the clay can take.
Functional pottery, on the other hand, has well defined parts that must be present to be “functional”.  I enjoy taking the amorphous clay and giving “life” to each piece.  Each pot has its own gesture or mood.
When material and form come together, something magical happens.  A functional whimsical little pot invites you to play and have some fun.
