Kari makes all her own clay and glaze with a variety of inspirations ranging from Oribe-ware from her time in Japan, to her history of quilting with her mother and grandmother. She creates functional and decorative potteryand her vessels range from traditional to sculptural, cut and reassembled vessels. All forms begin as traditional wheel thrown vessels and then are altered or embellished off the wheel. Her pieces are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.
