Process, form and surface continue to be integral elements in my work.  After 20 plus years of exploring the ceramic material I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to explore the effects of wood-firing clay.  To see the effects of the flame pattern, ash and wood on the ceramic form continues to amaze and excite me.  To explore painting with the fire is humbling. Humility, awe, and pride are felt as I explore what so many before me have.
