Large serving bowl

Wheel-thrown Ware for Kitchen and Table

On the wheel, I attempt to wed functionality with grace of form.  Teapots of varying shapes and sizes; gravy boats with accompanying trays to catch the drips; wider and flatter serving bowls for pasta or fruit; lidded containers for casseroles, compost, or storage; tall coffee cups with bulbous bottoms – each of these assignments I set myself provides challenge and fulfillment.

I learned to throw from Lotte Streisinger, and she in turn learned from Marguerite Wildenhain, who had this to say —

Technique alone has no depth of meaning: as in poetry, where the most perfect technique in rhyme and  ease, without a valuable thought and emotion behind it, would  not make a poem of any significance, so too with pottery.
