Creating a commission piece is an organic process, from original sketches to final hand delivery. It brings me joy to work with my clients and collaborate creatively on the final vision of a piece. Each ceramic piece is individually handmade and fired in my studio. I am drawn to incorporating organic natured materials that offer texture found in natural fibers and textiles. I work within a range of clay bodies to achieve a cohesive piece, from porcelain to a variety of hues in stoneware.

My pieces are inspired by nature and landscapes of this beautiful earth. Each piece is an extension of my soul and how I view the majesty of the space we are gifted to live and breathe.

Form, texture, shadow, and sound all play a role in the creation of my pieces. My intention is to express a sense of peace, tranquility, and interest through each shape, texture, gradation and harmony of neutrals.

Each piece is unique and speaks to the clay body chosen for its intended environment. Stoneware has a grit and sand to it that breaths an easy casualness to it. Stoneware can be found in a variety of colors, individual pieces and colors can be mixed to create interest, and a cohesive color palette. Raw, unglazed clay creates a beautiful texture and can be washed with a translucent layer for a two tone effect.

A variety of glazes can elevate a piece as well as create texture and interest. Glazes can create a mood of elegance when shiny or a casual understated sophistication when fired in a matte hue.

The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, and God. A very meaningful shape when considering a commission piece to adorn a home or business.

Pricing is based upon the size and difficulty of the piece. Once we connect, discuss the project in detail and timeline, I will submit a personalized commission work order. Generally original commission pieces require 10 weeks; however, 8 weeks can be accommodated for a 25% rush fee depending on the scope of the project.
