LeftPipe
A pipe I made that works exceptionally well left handed.

When I make pottery, I think about how it looks, but also about how it will play with and enhance what it will be used for. I want there to be an aesthetic symbiosis between the container and what it contains. During the process of creating each vessel I continuously visualize its function in my mind as I work to transform it into a piece that will go beyond its basic function. My pottery can stand on its own or greatly enhance, visually, it's function.

Symbiosis
A ceramic planter I created, when I make pottery I try to think of how it will look, play with, and enhance what it's in use for, creating an aesthetic symbiosis of sorts. Basically my pottery is designed with transformation with function in mind, it effectively stands on it's own, but doesn't truly shine, visually, unless used for it's function, because as it's visualized and created it's function is consistently in mind. In this case, that function is fulfilled when it has a plant growing out of it.
