About

Applying texture to functional ceramics, creating fine art conventional forms for everyday use.

I was introduced to clay in a basic ceramic class at Keystone College in 1996. It was there that I saw the artist and professor Bill Tersteeg turn a large bowl on his wheel. I fell in love with clay as a medium because I was able to manipulate it in many ways, far easier than painting or drawing. After achieving my AFA, I then spent three years at Marywood University where I completed my BFA in Ceramics with artist and professor Matt Povse.

While attending university, I took time off to work an apprenticeship with the artist Sharon DiGennaro at Wild Flower Pottery in Thompson, PA. With student loans to pay off and no studio space, I put my wheel and kilns in storage for a long and sad 10 years and worked in the manufacturing industry. When we bought our home, I put in a small studio and dug out my wheel and kiln. It has been an incredible time working with clay again, and I was encouraged to sell some of my functional work by family. I continued almost where I left off. I have been studying textures on functional ceramics, making conventional forms a work of art for people to enjoy while using them.



I hope you enjoy the work and welcome to Creek Road Pottery.
