About

My pots are created to be simple, easy to handle, and to use daily. Pots that are functional just by being in someone's home.

I am mostly self-taught, as no formal education, but I have had a few great teachers (thanks Ken ) along the way, many great workshops, touring museums, galleries, books, DVD’s and just life in general as teachers.

My obsession for clay began many years ago thus creating my addiction to wood/soda firing. In wood firings the clay can be glazed or left unglazed to highlight the natural ash melt that occurs during the firing process. Wood firings are both labor intensive and expensive and require a commitment of several days of constant attention to complete. I have made some of my closest friends in the pottery community while working long shifts of wood stoking! I have plans to build my own wood kiln soon!…

Horsehair Raku is another favorite for me. There’s just something magical about how the hair dances, creating it’s own artwork on the pot. And of course, I work with stoneware.

I have exhibited and sold at local and regional art/craft shows and galleries. I have a working studio I fondly refer to as the “Purple Gypsy”. You never know what’s firing! If you live in Kentucky or don't mind a road trip, email/convo me to come for a visit!
