Nature and purpose: these are the two guiding principals in my work. The flowing blue water from the White Mountains to the Seacoast as well as the robust reds of our New Hampshire autumns are captured in my vessels. The natural tones I favor seem well suited to the principals I follow. The Shaker’s attention to utility inspires me to focus on the purpose of every pot. I strive for creations that are both pleasing to the eye and comfortable to the hand.
