I’ve been making pottery for over 30 years. I started with hand building and over the years picked up the skills on the wheel as well. Each piece is a uniquely created piece. I have a home studio in my kitchen nook with a backyard kiln. I must have come from a line of women who created vessels because everything I make holds something, be it coffee, a fruit salad, or flowers. The feel of the vessel is important to me. The way a mug feels when you hold it to drink your coffee is a central part of the enjoyment of my work.
About five years ago my work took on a new direction when I started collaborating with my daughter, Laura, who is a painter as well as a digital arts teacher. We work together to combine our skills on one piece elevating my work to a new level. The work in this shop has my daughter’s designs fired into my work with iron oxide.
I work in both stoneware and porcelain and fire to 2226 degrees Fahrenheit or cone 6. All my ware is lead free and food safe. You can microwave or put them in the oven or even in the dishwasher.
