While my work includes design, illustration, & painting, I especially love ceramics & sculpting. Goddessoffire is a fitting moniker for ceramics since it is transformed by fire. Fire is alive! Whether it is warming and welcoming, or a demon of destruction, it is alive and intriguing as it represents raw, untamed passion and beauty in all its forms. My intent is to showcase these properties. As a ceramic artist, I believe it is important to relinquish firm expectations of my work and allow the kiln and chemistry to do it’s work. The final opening of the kiln can hold a beautiful surprise or dull disappointment. Bowls, cups, and foodware are food and dishwasher safe. In another chapter of my life, I explored the prevention side of fire from public policy to education to emergency planning and response. Now, my art leads the way.
