ABOUT MY MONGRELS
My mongrels, monsters, creatures, and goobers are full of character—each one tells a story. My work
is based in wheel throwing and pinch pot techniques with the faces and other features sculpted on.
Each monster mug, jug, or spoon rest is uniquely handmade and named. You can find the tangled
lineage of my creature spoon rests at pickledaliens.com. I enjoy working with multiple clay bodies
for surface color and texture variation. My pottery is fired in electric and wood kilns to cone 5/6.
