I’ve enjoyed playing in the dirt since I was able to walk. Mud pies, digging for rocks, gardening, you name it, I had fun doing it. Much later in life, at a community education class, I discovered the joy of playing in clay. Since that discovery, I’ve taken advantage of various community studios and workshops to develop skills and explore firing techniques. In 2001, I established my home studio in Farmington, Minnesota which allows me to focus on the techniques and colors that speak to me (though it’s sometimes hard to hear over the music). Shortly after in 2003, I established Old Crow Studio in the beautiful bluff country of Southeastern Minnesota. Earth tone glazes, a portion of pots without glaze and wood firing are my current interests.
