Spending time in the kitchen gives Deb ideas for her pottery forms and surfaces. She intends for her work to be held and used. The angular lines and soft volumes create visual contrast. Smooth surfaces hold bright swatches of color against broad planes of neutrals hues. Her work is complex and clear drawing from plant, architectural and bird forms. She brings her world into her work for you to enjoy in your home.
