The pots I’ve been making in recent years are fun and whimsical.  Each is different, unpredictable. I am probably more pleased with these new pots than any I’ve ever done.  Making new forms is still a driving force; there is excitement in it.  I visualize something I want to make and it’s interesting to see how close I get to the visualization in the finished piece.  Accidents are sometimes better or worse than what you had hoped for. Accident is always there.  Working with has been my passion. I have had a pleasant and successful lifetime of playing in the medium.

The melancholy of post maturity is upon me but I try my best to turn it into humor.
