"My work with ceramics begins with the clay. By using materials dug from the river bottoms and mountainsides of Western North Carolina, my work gains a connection to place and establishes the materials as a valuable source of influence. I dig my own clay from a tobacco field alongside Turkey Creek and everything I make contains an element of my response to that experience."
