I began working with clay about twenty-five years ago. While living in Naples, Italy from 1983 through 1987, I had the opportunity of studying at the Instituto della Porcellana e della Ceramica located on the grounds of the Capodimonte Palace. From the Italian masters of the institute, I learned techniques, which included making many types of flowers and leaves in the Capodimonte style, a tradition that dates back to the early 1700’s. This experience in Italy marked the first step in the process for a clear direction in my ceramic work.
Upon returning to the United States, I worked with many ceramic techniques to enhance and combine with the ceramic processes I learned in Italy. I studied throwing on the potter’s wheel from an accomplished San Diego potter. Creating bowls and other forms became a necessary step in the development of my personal style.
I maintain an interest in architecture including the extraordinary style of Antonio Gaudí. I am fascinated with texture, which is also seen in Gaudí’s work. The abstract and intricate forms are ones I have incorporated into my work of a hand built-slab technique. To these forms I apply various patterns and textures and create free form, architectural objects. Specifically these forms become vessels, baskets, wall and table vases.
All of my work is created in a studio at my home and in Studio 16B at the Spanish Village Art Center, Balboa Park. I am a member and board member of the San Diego Museum of Art Artist’s Guild, a member and Board President of the Allied Artists Association of San Diego, member of Spanish Village Art Center, and Clay Artists of San Diego.
