Every creative life I’ve lived in this one life influences how I create my pots. And everything I’ve done creatively has influenced me. My singer’s life brings the presence of rhythm, tone, and harmony to my work. My actor’s life expresses emotion, drama, humor, and play. My director’s life offers perspective, guidance, and discovery. Making pots allows these creative aspects to appear as cups, bowls, plates and platters. And in the making, I appear.
