About

I'd like to say that I was raised by mystical beings, or given certain gifts at birth. But the truth is that I worked hard to learn how to throw and handbuild pots and, discovered at a later date, that I actually AM creative.

I also love doing commissions, so feel free to share your needs and thoughts with me.

Cheers!
