My work in clay has mainly focused on the thrown form. The constant repetition of form has helped me to develop technical expertise on the wheel and refine my sensitivity to the subtleties of form. Over the years, my interest in working on the wheel has never diminished. I still find the process of throwing the most enjoyable part of my work.
My glazes are a high-fired crystalline glaze. During the firing process crystals develop - a micro crystalline structure not noticeable to the naked eye. These crystals refract light and create the iridescent quality of the glaze. The process of glaze melt leaves crystal ropes in the surface which add a dynamic dimension to the glaze. ~ Jean Meinhardt
