A noted contemporary Seattle artist/potter has had numerous shows all over the world. Featured on the cover of "American Craft" in 2015. Here is how DS describes her goals and aspirations " find it rewarding and challenging to make pots people will use. In my home growing up, handmade objects held special value. They were gestures of consideration and love. I find objects a dwelling place for intention and association. The parameter of function both limits and frees me. It gives me direction and attaches me to community. Eating with family and friends instills a sense of place and relation. At the table I assess finished work and connect studio practice to living. This starts the cycle of making again. I want my pots to live in the kitchen where economy and celebration infuse life with purposeful beauty.

The processes I use yield complex forms defined by animated lines and soft planes. Simple wheel thrown and hand built parts are pieced together. With practice the process has become nimble and intuitive. This is freeing to me. I find refinement like a glacier moving down a valley: troublesome areas are meditatively eroded away and new ideas spring to mind. Slow practice yields fluidity in process, allowing me to shift focus to formal elements, intentional references, and how a pot will feel or fit into life."
