Artist Statement:

These pieces were a departure from my normal work. I lean towards production pottery with a taste for functionality. Pottery serves as a hobby I pour my soul into and it helps tie me to a more serene approach to life. Cooking has done the same thing for me for years. It seemed fitting to tie the two parts of my life together as the inspiration for a pottery set. Onions and Leaks took functionality and threw it out the window in exchange for a more relaxed and creative approach to things I’ve made time and time again.
