My education in clay was self directed. I needed a creative outlet to my full time office job. I always had a fascination with and a desire to learn how to make pottery on a wheel. And so in 1992, I started ceramic classes at the local community college and instantly loved working with clay and the challenge it presented. I pursued courses at clay centers, traveled to weekend 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, of making glazes and of firing a kiln. The creative process presents endless possibilities.
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 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.
