Flame Painted Vessels
Spirit keeper Urns

I have made these pots, with their woven inlay lids and smooth smoky surfaces, since 1982. I did not set out to make cremation urns for ashes, though I am honored that they have found this function. They are fullness of form, about nature's random beauty, about the hand and the heart. They are about the deep woods, secluded places where light sneaks in. They are part of a larger body of work in a technique that has roots in American Indian pottery history.
