My education in clay was self-directed and began as a creative outlet to balance my full time office job. I always had a fascination and desire to learn how to make pottery on a wheel. I attended evening ceramic classes at the local community college and instantly loved having my hands in clay. I took courses at clay centers and traveled to workshops given by professional potters who shared their techniques and skills. With a lot of determination and dedication I learned the art and craft of making good pots, formulating glazes and firing a kiln.
I strive to create aesthetically designed pottery for everyday use and special occasions. The style is simple, yet elegant in form, and the surfaces are colorful and pleasing to the touch. I use porcelain and stoneware clays that are fired in an electric kiln to vitrification.
The ceramic process is so creative and satisfying … the possibilities endless!
I love making pottery! I hope you experience as much pleasure and satisfaction in using them as I do in making them!
“Clay (pottery) represents timelessnes. It’s old and modern, and if you don’t break it, it will last for hundreds, maybe thousands of years.” Anna Lerinder
