About

Accidental Artist

Welcome to my pottery shop. I live and work in a small, rural town in upstate New York. I first opened my Etsy shop in 2009 but closed it shortly thereafter. I reopened in February of 2013 and have enjoyed being a part of the Etsy community. I discovered the joy of creating pottery about 18 years ago when I signed up for an evening pottery class taught by a local artist. I didn't think I had any artistic talent, and thought if I practiced enough I might, possibly, be able to make a pot. Well I fell in love with it immediately and have been creating ever since.

Although most of my pottery is created on a pottery wheel I also enjoy creating pieces by hand using lumps or slabs of clay. After the piece is made it is usually trimmed, and dried, then hand painted with an original design and fired in an electric kiln to 1800 degrees. When the first firing is completed it is usually dipped in a clear glaze and fired again to about 2100 degrees. One of my favorite things about pottery is opening the kiln lid after the second firing to see how my creations turned out. Creating a pot is such a long process and since each kiln load can turn out differently, opening the lid is like opening a gift, Exciting, Fun, and you are never completely sure what you will find. .

In addition to being a potter I am also a licensed social worker. I hold an MSW and have practiced social work for nearly 30 years in a variety of settings, primarily in healthcare with adults who have a disability.
