- William Morris
Conversations and connections made around the table create
wonderful memories. Loving the time spent around the table
with family and friends motivated me to begin making tableware
thirty years ago, and I've never looked back.
Although mine is more of a wild place shared with
deer, raccoons, skunks, squirrels and wild turkeys,
my garden, with its many birds and redwood trees,
provides constant inspiration.
I love the focus, preoccupation and process of
making things. Everything I create is hand-crafted
in my home studio in Northern California, surrounded
by redwood trees, nature and wildlife. All have influenced
me in designing simple pieces reflecting the quiet, calm
beauty of the natural world.
The pieces we use and the things we look at day after day should add
beauty to our environment and make us happy when using them.
Whether making a platter, a lamp or a garden sculpture, my goal is to
contribute beauty, simplicity and a sense of harmony through my work.
