My education in clay was self-directed and began when I decided I needed a creative outlet to balance my full time office job. I always had a fascination with and desire to learn how to make pottery on a wheel. I began 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 the techniques and skills needed to make a good pot, to formulate glazes and to fire a kiln.
The ceramic process is creative and so satisfying … the possibilities endless!
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 and fire in an electric kiln. All pots are dishwasher and microwave safe.
So after 27 years, I still love making pots! I hope you experience much pleasure and satisfaction in using them.
“The link between the hands of the maker and the hands of the user seems increasingly important to me in this world where we are often distanced from the sources of the things we rely on to sustain us.” Charity Davis-Woodard
