Chemistry Teacher to Potter
About 15 years ago, I was a high school chemistry teacher and participated in a project with an art teacher and the local craft museum. The project was to show the relationship between chemistry and ceramics. I worked with the resident artist (potter) from the museum to create lessons about the physics involved in throwing clay to the chemistry of glazes. The resident potter let me try out throwing on the wheel and I was hooked. That was over 10 years ago! I took lessons and learned from members of my pottery guild. I spent a week at the John C. Campbell Folk Art School in Brasstown, NC improving my hand building skills.
I have recently moved to Lyman, SC and eager to establish myself in the upstate art community. My work centers on wheel thrown and hand built functional pottery for the home and garden inspired by the shapes, colors and textures found in nature.
