Ken - It is my principle that the object I make is beautiful, balanced, and works well for it's intended purpose. 

Tina- I can't describe the feelings I have when faced with a table full of white bisqued pots. It's pretty exciting. I start to draw on them, and I know what to do, the next figure, the next figure, this shape looks beautiful like this. It all happens very quickly, it's kind of magic.
