Handmade Memories from America's Hometown!

I have been making pottery for over 40 years, since the 70's. While in high school, I met a potter and immediately knew this is what I wanted to do for a living. After 2 summers of apprenticeships and also attending a local university as an art major, I set up my first studio in 1976. After all these years, I still enjoy throwing pots and creating new shapes, glazes, techniques, etc. I have always felt that making pots begins with the rawest of materials - the earth! Both the clay itself but also the glazes which I mix myself - glazes are minerals from the earth ... cobalt for blue, iron for brown, copper for red, etc.

For the last 20 years, I have had the need for assistants. Sherri has worked with me for 20 plus years, Lisa for 16 years on and off - glazing, finishing, loading kilns, loading for art fairs. I currently have 2 people helping me(Sherri and Lisa) in the studio with all these duties ... I can't do it alone anymore! Like us on Facebook and check out images of us all working!
