Sgraffito is an ancient technique that involves scratching a design thru a colored slip to reveal the color of the clay body beneath. I try to bring lightness and humor with the love of nature and of natural forms to terra cotta pottery with sgraffito surface designs.  

My ceramic sculpture is an exploration of animal figures, simplifying the form and finishing with simple patinas.

Fold-forming is a metal forming technique created by Charles Lewton-Brain .  Using sheet metal, many textures and shapes can be created in the process of folding and forging.  I am exploring vessel forms  as a continuation of the vessels I create in pottery.
