My education in clay was self directed and began when I was in my 40’s. I needed a creative outlet to my full time office job. I attended classes at the local community college, pursued courses at clay centers and workshops and practiced whenever I had a spare moment. I met many talented and skilled artists along the way who shared the skills and techniques of producing good pottery, making glazes and firing a kiln. The creative possibilities of clay seemed infinite.
I strive to create aesthetically designed pottery for everyday use and special occasions. The style is simple and elegant in form with surfaces that are colorful and pleasing to the touch. I use grolleg porcelain and cassius basaltic clay and fire in an electric kiln to cone 6.
I am passionate about making pottery … and hope my joy and enthusiasm is experienced by all who use it.
