Joy-fueled Ceramics for a Joy-filled Life

Nestled between living room and kitchen, my corner studio is my creative haven—bathed in natural light, stocked with supplies, and works in progress. It is also a pathway through the house for my lively family and pets, whose bright energy is pressed into each piece like a fingerprint.

My stoneware ceramics are wheel-thrown and/or hand built. Each piece is individually handcrafted with care to all stages of the making process. I personally prepare my ceramic glazes using raw materials and following established recipes. Glazes are blended over oxide layers to create natural hues in gentle color patterns. My work is fired in my electric kiln⏤vitrifying clay and glazes⏤into durable, lasting ceramics.

Using my handmade pottery at home—a favorite mug for morning coffee, garden flowers in a cheery vase—brings a smile. I hope my ceramics will radiate the same joy for you and become a treasured part of your everyday.
