About Basin and Range

I make all Basin and Range ceramic objects by hand in Tucson, Arizona. Adhering to the belief that less is more, I keep my designs simple and true to function. All of my ceramics are made with the intention to celebrate the beauty in everyday life.

The name Basin and Range comes from the desert landscape I inhabit. Past geological processes stretched the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico into the topography of mountain ranges rising from the desert floor that we see today. The expansive desert landscape emerges in my work through exploration in form and use of raw clay surfaces.
