"My work is not limited to just throwing on the wheel or hand-building. I do not want to limit myself to one type of firing, one clay, one technique of decorating, or one glaze. Each creative idea demands its own method of construction and finish. Each new material, technique or tool suggests something different to try. I want my work to be good not only now, but 10, 100, 1000 years from now; to be timeless and distinct."
