I love the tactile nature of clay, and most of my works are stamped, textured, or carved. My favorite clay body is a red stoneware called Klamath Red, which is made by Seatlle Pottery. Many of my glazes are hand mixed by me in my north end studio in Boise ID and are carefully selected to break over and enhance applied textures.
I consider myself a studio potter, rather than a production potter. I enjoy making individual, unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. I may make several similar items, but they will never be identical. I enjoy coming up with new ideas and designs. Many of my wares are meant to be mix and match. Glaze colors are earthy and coordinate well together.
I earned my BFA from Boise State University in Art Education and ceramics. A highlight of my college work was studying for three years under master Japanese potter John Takehara.
