Hand Thrown Bowls

Artist's bio:"What I like about working with clay is the enormous challenge of making art and ends meet, striving to pay the monthly bills, but keeping alive the spirit which drew me to clay in the first place. I like to repeat forms because it produces something fresh and not overly fussed with—an honest pot. For me repetition compliments the creative process. It's what my hands do to liberate my mind."
