As a functional potter living and working in Chester County, PA, I make porcelain, highfire tableware meant for people who love food, and love to present it well. I strive to make pots that are elegant in design, pleasing to the hand and that function well.
Functional potters love to hear, “I reach for your mug for my morning coffee.” This pot or that pot; the choice initiates the ritual of a first cup of coffee. Acts of choosing guide us to pay attention to small details in our day, expanding the experience–welcoming the potter to participate. Pots can set a process of community in motion, and community can be as intimately local as you, the pot, and the lives you share in your kitchen.
