I chose these simple pots (Everday Bowl and Luncheon Plate) because of their everyday elegance.
Michael Kline has long influenced me, and I was lucky to work with him in an apprentice-like relationship back in 2003 and 2004. While working with Michael, I learned to decorate pottery.
Of course, my work looked very different then, but I learned about dividing up space, and integrating how the kiln affects the patterns and surfaces.
Michael has since remained a good friend to me and my family, and because we work in similar ways and with similar kilns, he continues to be part of my work and my creative process.
