About

After watching craft shows in the mid 90's like ALEENE'S CREATIVE LIVING and CAROL DUVALL on HGTV, I learned to do simple crafts like rubber stamping, beaded earrings, greeting cards, and glass etching. Then I saw several shows on pottery and tile making. I instantly wanted to learn more. Coincidently a traditional ceramics shop was opening in town ( Sal's Ceramics ). I stopped by August of 1999. I had some ideas, and a NASCO arts and crafts catalog. I asked a gazillion questions about clay and glazes. Back then, my work area consisted of a piece of wood on top of the washing machine (in our basement) and I used an empty wine bottle to roll the clay out as flat and as even as I could. Now I use a slab roller that's attached to a 6' folding table in my home studio. I've sold my pottery pieces ( mirrors, plates, bowls, magnets, pins ) to local gift shops, floral shops, coffee shops and even our hospitals gift shop.
