I create with specific intent and purpose, producing unique vessels that are as pleasing to look at as they are to use. Every piece is distinctive and different and can be adored for its uniqueness. My forms are influenced by nature, similar to the sensual curve of a bird's wing or the seductive curve of a mountain. The undulating movement of life can be seen in the flowing progression of my pottery from foot to rim.
Embellishing the surface of the piece is as important as the form itself. Once the vessel has been completed I start to enhance the surface one stamp at a time. I begin at the rim with a single, handmade stamp, perfectly placed, and continue around the piece until I have stamped a full ring at the top. I decorate in concentric circles down the piece until one stamp pattern has been completed. I then go back with a smaller stamp in the negative spaces until the full pattern is complete. After the body of the piece has been decorated I finish it by integrating the design onto the bottom.
My work is special and unique because of the patterns I apply to the surface of the pieces. All stamps have been designed by my and no other pottery will have this pattern or design besides Plays In Mud. All my pieces are elegant and distinct for their hand-made quality, unique designs and attention to detail. Its all in the details! You will find hidden design elements inside the lids of teapots, on the bottom of vases, and running up the handles on every piece. Some potters do not take the same amount of time or care in producing top quality products as I do. As a master potter, my attention to detail, finesse and precision sets my work apart from cheaper, lower-quality pottery.
