DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
My process is a very traditional process that has been handed down to me from my Great Grandmother and Great Uncle. I throw on the same wheels they used and use the same tools they did. I love the process of making something functional from just a heap of mud that will turn into a beautiful, usable mug. I love that heat, over 2000 degrees, can turn clay into ceramics.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Tradition inspires me. The tradition that my family members have handed down to me. Also, the daily improvement I see in my craft is inspiring.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I love road trips. Once, my family and I took a road trip from Hephzibah, GA to Ocatal, Nicaragua.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
Hands down, Knuckle Sandwiches
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
