I make fun and functional work. I enjoy making cups and drinkware that enhances the experience of their use. Tumblers and stemless wine glasses are my most popular items. I also do ornaments for the garden as well as around the home, such as flat sun discs, teardrops and stringer ornaments. My decorative works include wall roundels that are visually stunning and easy to hang and organize, ranging from 6 inches to 20 inches. The “Pod” series is inspired by medieval German hot bit work. These unique objects are tri-pod vessels that seem to walk right off the pedestal and engage the viewer.
