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.
I use porcelain and stoneware clays and fire in an electric kiln to cone 6. All pots are dishwasher and microwave safe.
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 am passionate about making pottery and hope my joy and enthusiasm is experienced by all who use it. The possibilities of the ceramic process are endless!
