My functional ceramics begins on the computer using a CAD program to design the form, and then it is printed into flat patterns that will later be transferred to slabs of clay and folded into 3D forms. I also use the computer to design graphic patterns that are cut by a local sign company to create masks or resists for glazing the surface of my work. My approach to the development of my work stems from my previous experience as a graphic designer and my interest in combining technology with traditional pottery. In other words combining hard edge technology with soft clay that is put together with hands leaving traces of being handmade.
