I aim to find the artful in the ordinary.

Since discovering ceramics in college, I delight in creating vessels that will become heirlooms for the modern traditionalist.

My ceramic work is characterized by earthy imperfections, a range of shapes that emerge organically, and playful, irreplicable patterns. I want my pots to be multifunctional; what one person uses as a planter another may use as a home for tiny treasures.

There’s something special in knowing that an object I’ve made – that I’ve conceived out of thin air, out of a ball of clay – will soon be something that another person lives with and chooses to keep in their home. I believe we ought to be especially selective about the objects with which we surround ourselves, as our habitat shapes and fuels our being.

The Object Enthusiast is my blog and shop where I share my thoughts, discoveries and curated objects created by myself and artists I admire. Welcome. You’re right on time.
