“When working on my vessels, form is always essential for me. I love throwing on the potter's wheel as much as hand-building, even thought my approach to each technique is different. When I hand-build I start with a plan, which does not include an exact image of finished work. The form emerges only through the process of work and dialogue with clay. When working on the wheel I want a comprehensive, but simple form. Each part of the process is adventure, but mixing glazes from local materials is especially exciting. So many possibilities… I believe that all vessels need a blessing of serendipity, that is why I choose porcelain and also happily give the last word to nature. In the wood kiln 1280°C -1350°C (2336F-2455F), the vessel can truly prove its right to be. Simultaneously it develops character, strength and energy."

Woodfiring demands discovery and consonancy with nature. For us, making pots is more about process than product. Each work begins its life on the potters wheel. It is altered or assembled off the wheel, fired, glazed with a mixture of natural materials and finally fired a second time in a wood-burning kiln of our own construction at 1260C - 1350C.

... each part of the process of making pottery hides adventure. Most excitement I find making glazes from natural materials - so many possibilities ... I believe that every vessel needs blessing of circumstances. To this believe I adjust choice of materials and firing. In wood kiln each piece affirm its chance on existence and gets its character, strength and energy ...
