‘I make objects that are to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis. I would rather be in someone's kitchen cabinet than in a glass case. When I design my pottery, I am always aware that the piece may become woven into the everyday fabric of a person's life, or given for an important occasion. It has to be special, unusual, quirky–and feel like it is just PERFECT for yourself or someone you know.’
