I believe that nothing brings people together like food. This is why I am drawn to pottery: it fosters community. I want to be a part of people coming together to share a meal. People eat, drink, laugh, argue, cry and share ideas around a table, and this interaction brings us closer together. Now more than ever, I value this exchange of ideas. My pots are fired in wood kilns, a tradition that a potter could not accomplish alone. A community of artists comes together to fire their pots together. I hope that these pots fired in my community can bring other communities together to share a meal.
