This artist employs several slip decoration techniques on their stoneware pieces. Motifs of the designs came from various sources but they seem to be influenced most from the traditional Japanese patterns found in many common objects people use in their lives. Designs are first carved into leather-hard ware and then filled with colored slips. Excess slips are cleaned off before the bisque firing. Prior to the glaze firing the pieces are sanded once more. They are fired to cone 5 in electric kiln.
