My mother and grandmother were the sort that believed that getting dirty was an acceptable part of childhood. Play hard, use your imagination, and come home tired – but on-time – for dinner. Making pottery allows me to continue to play in the tradition in which I was raised. It also challenges me with the endless possibilities of every step in the creative process. And it’s a whole lot of fun. I fell in love.
The wheel is my chosen tool. Additionally, I often alter, carve, and add hand-built bits to create functional pieces with a twist of whimsy. My functional stoneware pottery is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
