From the first time I felt clay moving on the wheel, molded by the pressure of my hands, it took on nearly magical qualities for me. It can be formed and shaped while wet then fired in a kiln, forever changing it into something that will stand the test of time. I can hardly wait for each new day when I can return to work with the clay. Again and again I am drawn back to the wheel to improve and refine my work.
After 20 years in the textile and apparel industry I left to recreate my life. Over the years I worked in a variety of capacities, from design, to production planning, to marketing. This well-rounded business background provided the tools needed to operate my new pottery studio. My life-long love of art provided the inspiration.
In this world of mass production there is a special joy to be gained by adding handmade items, each piece unique, to our daily lives. When you hold the pottery in your hands and enjoy using it on a daily basis, you complete the cycle I began with wet clay.
