Short Statement

My pots are contemporary; the designs I use are ancient. The wading birds on this vessel are based on petroglyphs done by the Taíno people of the Dominican Republic. To make my pots look as time-worn as the petroglyphs that inspire them, each piece is wrapped in iris leaves and placed in its own container before being put in the kiln. As I work, I am engaged in conversations that span millenia, allowing me to listen and respond to the work of artisans who lived in the distant past.
