I make pots to be used. Mostly they are modest sized forms for cooking, serving, for keeping things and for flowers. I want them to be used because I believe that a pot only fully communicates as it is being used. The best pots, like the best poems and the best paintings, continue to reveal themselves over time. I hope the people who buy my pots or get them as gifts find that using them makes the simple everyday acts of eating, drinking and sharing food more special than they might have been.
