My work is saturated with deep, intense and multilayered colour. My core aim is to produce pottery that conveys a feeling of warmth, pleasure, and visual clarity. Although, I use a complex and technically rigourous glazing process, I seek simplicity in the finished product. My work is functional, yet a strongly sculptural sense of form runs through it.
Key artistic influences in my life include: Sung Dynasty pottery; Danish Modern; the British potter Lucy Rie; my mother - printmaker Sharon Merkur; and my teacher - sculptor Leonhard Oesterle. Hopefully you can see their energy, restraint and elegance shine through in my pots.
