Description: These curved platter forms are slab constructed, then finished with a thrown foot. Wired for hanging, they are especially effective as wall pieces. Some choose to display them in plate stands, or on flat surfaces. The platters are made with stoneware clays, and then decorated with wax resist brushwork and multiple glazes. Due to my co-creatorship with the kiln, glaze appearances are never exactly alike. These pieces are reduction fired in a gas kiln to cone 10, or 2400 degrees Fahrenheit. The examples shown on the preceding pages are representative of my current work.


Artist’s Background: My clay work is based in the tradition of the Mingei, or Folk Art Movement of Japan. Two formal apprenticeships, with Tatsuzo Shimaoka of Mashiko (1977-1979) and Tsuneji Ueda of Kyoto (1979), provide a rich source of inspiration for my studio work. My aesthetic philosophy is grounded in the beauty of simple form and simple function.
