A word from the artist...
My stoneware pottery is wheel-thrown in my studio in Durham, North Carolina. All glazes featured here come from glazes I have either developed from the ground up or are my own derivations of recipes I have come across during my study of pottery. Every time I sit at the wheel, I attempt to create art that represents a balance of form and function. Once the clay has been shaped, I fire my pieces to stoneware temperatures, ensuring that the clay body is "fixed" and impermeable to water. In the firing process, my glazes capture the molten flow of the glass-melt and delightfully unpredictable effects. . . . .JS
