Thanks for your interest in my work. I began working with clay through a
beginning wheel class 20 years ago. I felt pulled toward pottery from a
very young age. My path was set from that first class. I continue with
classes and workshops at any opportunity. I'm at my studio most days.
My husband & I bought an old building on Main St. in Franklinton
about 8 years ago. It proves to be a great work space, allowing room for
lots of equipment. My faithful companion Luca is there with me. He's
our spoiled little shihtzu poodle mix. Our first frou frou dog, he rules
our world. I still feel excitement when thinking about and planning my
next project. Really, any time my hands are in clay I'm at Mardi Gras.
I find inspiration through various settings in nature. As an art lover, I
enjoy poring through various art and pottery books. I continually think
about what will make each piece the best it can be as I'm working,
thinking about finishes such as handles, spouts, and glazing. I strive
to reflect my love of clay in each finished piece.
