It started in the backyard…..

Guess I come by clay naturally, in the purest sense of the word. I actually recall making mud pies in my backyard as a kid. I've never minded getting messy, so my vocation as a ceramic artist and teacher fits that to a tee.

I'm also obsessed with learning all that I can about clay. From sculptural processes to alternative firing methods. Don't make me choose just one.

You'll find me equally excited to share what I've learned. Because creativity is contagious, I do the happy dance when students come up with amazing pieces.

    I've been playing with clay off and on for the past 20 years. I love the flexibility of the medium. I know that I will never learn everything about ceramics in my lifetime, and that's okay with me, its a great teacher of patience to have in my life.

    I'd find Zorro checking out the comfort of curve and glaze of new pots.

    Unlike his wife, this sweet man can be seen waiting patiently in line at our local post-office finding the best route to ship your ceramics.
