About

I am an artist living in Southeastern Massachusetts, USA.

I have always enjoyed experimenting with technical as well as varying media, and have
often worked in mini series.

I enjoy working in mini series and sometimes taking a different slant and begin making another mini series. Continuing on and into another direction. Firing and making in the Southcoast Area of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

I enjoy the tactile nature of clay. The tactile arts gives back to the me a sense of birth, and creation. The touch very much needed to interact with either the clay as in this shop, or with yarn and fibers ( in my franticfibers shop). How do I communicate how it feels, it feels ilke when I was a sick child and was comforted by my mother's caressing hand over the top of my head while she gently…

I often hear artists speak of their work inspirations. To me we all live in the same world,
are able to see what each other sees.. that is if we choose.

I experience and experiment with various parts of the processes and am amazed by the results when the firing process is over and enjoy each piece as a new creation. I am currently firing in various temperatures.

In the Spring/ Summer of 2011 I have been working with others at building a wood kiln, meanwhile I have been throwing pots in preparation for when the kiln is available.

During the winter months, I tend to gravitate towards warmer interests such as knitting and
now for the boring stuff:
I began pottery while I was in my late 30's. In 1994 after reaching a new low I reassessed my life and made my first pot on the wheel, since then I have grown my education for my use as needed at various locations around the country utilizing different venues including: apprenticeships, continuing education, formal education, visiting artist programs, an array of workshops and at various artists locations.

I stand by my product locally and internationally. I pack my fragile items very securely with either multiple boxes and /or bubble wrap, styro type peanuts, and exrun newsprint.. i try and get packing materials from other companies and/or incoming packaging to keep packing material costs down..


Additional Notes:
My shipping charge also covers handling and packing. While I do attempt to recycle as much as I can, I consider the need to pack seriously and as such will not skimp on it. Most items are doubled boxed, or packaged very tightly.

I will also recalculate for multiple purchases, since there is a large disparity in the items I have on the site the second pricing makes no sense to me.

Should there be a breakage issue with my product please do inform me thru convo first so that we can find a remedy to the situation. ( please provide picture in convo)

If you are outside of the United States and interested in purchasing something from my shop, I will gladly work with you to gain a shipping price that accurately reflects the method you choose to get the package to you. Please convo me on method of choice. Usually over 4 pounds becomes a problem, and is not advantageous to ship.
