Introduction

For hundreds of years indigenous people of North America have been experimenting with clay, utilizing its substance, for beauty and function. Coming from such a background I have been combing the ideals, of passion, apprenticeship and patience in creating hand built decorative pottery. The method is antiquated, laborious and rewarding, resulting in pottery that are unique in their own special way. The coiling method of pottery is what I choose, without the use of a modern day potters wheel, I am able to make pots that are light in weight yet captures the concept of symmetry and form. Each pot is hand burnished giving the surface a smooth finish allowing the paint to flow effortlessly across the surface. Patterns and designs are as limitless as the human imagination, spanning the globe each culture can be represented through their own unique patterns and designs. Inspired by these patterns from various cultures, in conjunction with my own Native American background, I hand paint each piece free hand using no stencils , orchestrating inspired patterns across the surface, hoping to capture something fresh and innovative. The isolated moments of the hand painting process are a revelation of beauty and design giving each piece its own individuality. Exposure to extreme violent forces of fire, are the final ingredient that results in pottery that will be an everlasting work of art.
