About

My name is Cheryl and I'm originally from Philadelphia, PA. In 2006, I moved to Texas and shortly after pursued a hidden interest and curiosity I dreamed about since my first museum visit as a child - learning to make pottery on the potters wheel. Years of instruction, workshops and informal education and here we are. It was love at first "throw" and I have never looked back.

Pottery is much more than a hobby - it is a constant challenge and an opportunity for me to express myself in a meaningful and lasting way. It is also another way to view the world and life through form, color, texture and depth.

Today, I maintain a quaint studio space where I work collaboratively with other artists who inspire and motivate me. I work exclusively with hi-fire clay, fired to cone 10 which produces very strong, durable and functional stoneware. I like to produce items that serve a purpose - drinking vessels, serving ware and more. My work is also available locally in Austin, TX at a local pottery gallery. To see some of my work onsite, please contact me here anytime.

Thanks for visiting and be well.
