I approach each new pot just as I would the sculptures I created out of clay. In the past, I always worked in a series. Each new sculpture was similar to the last, but the work was always evolving in new directions with each iteration. I have always liked to push clay to its maximum potential even at the risk of failure. Sometimes the pots do not work out, but the payoff for pushing my skills and the medium to the limit is always rewarded tenfold.
