"I use the potter's wheel to create most of my functional wares. For my latest series, I choose to explore issues around culture and home. To that end I took inspiration from my Danish heritage and created pieces with a Scandinavian flare then added imagery based on the beautiful Canada goose. I use clay body formulated here in Alberta. I paint each individual goose with various slips and glazes and then fire the pieces at my Calgary studio".
