"I build the pots by the coiling method, placing one coil of clay on top of another, blending, smoothing, shaping, sculpting as I go along. I refer to drawings I have made and to the gathered memento itself. The work forms through my hands, my memories are with me, as well as the present: what I am reading, or the words from a poem or a song repeating in my head. Sometimes it is a soothing process, sometimes I fight with the vessel: there is no template for the shape. It evolves in fragments, in stops and starts, like memory itself."
