Artist Statement

My pottery journey began in Japan. There I developed a strong desire to create functional ceramics for everyday use in the traditions of Hamada Shoji and Bernard Leach. The simplicity of form and the practicality of handcrafted folk objects have always been components of my life: in my childhood Germany, in my Masters Thesis on the Japanese Folk Crafts Movement, and in my studies at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.
