As a young boy I often played outdoors and made things out of dirt and sticks. I struggled sitting behind a desk at school. I knew very early that to survive spiritually I had to keep creating with my hands. My love for pottery stems from my deep connection with the earth and the satisfaction of using my hands to create shapes from clay. While I experience joy and satisfaction in a finished product, I value the process even more. For me, the process of making an object is both calming and exhilarating at the same time. Each phase, from centering a ball of clay onto the wheel, maneuvering it into a specific shape, trimming and placing my carvings onto that shape and then glazing it is an adventurous challenge from which I derive great pleasure.
