Process is the main influence on my work. I use a technique called water carving that mimics erosion. I paint paraffin on my dry, unfired pots and then wash the surface with a very wet sponge. The possibilities of this technique helped to create the patterns and lines decorating my pots. I didn't envision a style first. I was led to my current body of work by following this technique. Certain lines and shapes are possible in water carving and these are the lines and shapes in my work.
