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, traveled to weekend workshops given by established potters, and practiced, practiced, practiced whenever possible. I met many talented and skilled artists along the way who shared the skills and techniques to create a good pot, to formulate glazes and to operate a kiln.
The ceramic process is creative, satisfying, and challenging … the possibilities endless!
I strive to create aesthetically designed pottery for everyday use and special occasions. The style is simple, yet elegant in form, with surfaces that 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.
I am passionate about making pottery. It is my hope that all who use my pots may experience something of my joy and enthusiasm in making them.
All the best,
