I have been working exclusively with clay for the last 20 years. I create both functional and decorative work. I sell my work in galleries, fine art shows and commissions. I have my BS in art education and have been teaching art all my adult life. I love sharing my passion with others. I find it incredible that something beautiful and functional can be made with “mud”. Clay enables me to create in so many ways. I work with both stoneware and porcelain. I am inspired by the textures, patterns and forms in nature. My work is wheel thrown, altered, and hand built. I fire in a reduction atmosphere to enhance the surfaces of the clay and glazes. My functional ware is not only food safe but can be microwaved and washed in the dishwasher.
I am involved in our local clay guild. I also continue to take workshops and attend conferences to learn new skills and techniques. My favorite thing besides creating the work is when I have a returning customer telling me how much they enjoy using my pottery. I hope you like my work and that you enjoy your purchases for years to come.
