My work is driven by my desire for a moment of peace and sanity in the labyrinth of life. I am grateful that I had the privilege of growing up by the ocean on Cape Cod in a house full of people and chaos. At a young age, I found that my mind was calmed by sitting on the beach and gazing out at the endless ocean and horizon, taking in the colors and soft lines where water and land meet. The calm that is found at the ocean's edge is what I strive to embrace in my ceramic work. The buffed bare porcelain exterior is representative of the smooth sand that water has passed over. The undulating rim is designed to imitate the small ridge created by the pull of the tide flowing out.
