A collection of my latest cups, bowls, and mugs.

I create wheel-thrown functional pottery with the emphasis on the tactile and the intention of contemplation, while exploring the Japanese aesthetics of wabi-sabimono no aware, and shibusa

“It (wabi-sabi) nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.” – Richard Powell, Wabi Sabi Simple

“If an object or expression can bring about, within us, a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, then that object could be said to be wabi-sabi.” – Andrew Juniper, Wabi Sabi: The Japanese Art of Impermanence

The objects made by my hands should feel right in yours, unique vessels from which to eat and drink while pondering life, the universe, and everything.

Or simply enjoy a nice hot cup of tea.

This is my inspiration, motivation, and raison d’être as I continue to learn, create, and evolve.

Thank you and enjoy!

A dozen yunomi tea cups.

All of my pottery is mid- to high-temperature glaze fired stoneware (cone 6-10, over 2200ºF/1200ºC) and is non-toxic (lead-free & cadmium-free), microwave-safe, and dishwasher-ready. Hand washing with warm soapy water is encouraged.

Success! You're on the list.
