About

It all started with clay. I enrolled in a pottery class several years ago...something I had always wanted to try. Shortly after, I decided I needed an apron, so I designed one and made it with my ancient Singer sewing machine my quilter mom had given to me. My classmates at the studio admired my apron for its unique, functional design. I started making aprons for them, and thought that if these seasoned potters like what I make, maybe other potters will, too. So here I am. When I'm not potting and sewing, I am teaching three year olds at a cooperative preschool and parenting two active children. An Ivy League graduate, I would consider myself in a bit of a reinvention phase at the moment. And I've never felt more content. I love making things. And my children like it, too. I receive great satisfaction in creating something from scratch. It's even more satisfying knowing that people like what I make.
