“I pot for the challenge  of making something out of something so ordinary as common clay.  I find great joy in how people react  to the pieces I make.  I try continually  to improve  my skills so that the customer  is happy.  Since I am “colour blind” I do not  find joy in colours – my joy comes from the shapes and feel of my pottery.”
