About

40 years and 5 states

I spent my childhood near Cleveland, Ohio and went to college in the hills of northern Kentucky, where I lived 27 years. After graduating, a classmate and I opened and operated Steinkrug Pottery in a German village in Covington, Kentucky called Main Strasse. My business partner changed careers and I went on to sell my work to Kentucky State Parks and various shops and galleries in the Midwest. In 2000 my work was included in the book A Pottery Tour of Kentucky by Joe Molinaro.

In 2003 I moved to the desert of Nevada and my pottery influences became the Native American rock writings, or petroglyphs. There I met my husband Wayne, and together we moved to Juneau in 2005 for our Alaskan adventure. That adventure lasted almost 7 years and we made some lasting memories and life-long friends. My pottery was influenced by the ocean, the rain, the bears, ravens, halibut, king crab and more.

Not being a fan of rain and snow, when Wayne retired in 2012, I convinced him to settle near the coast in South Carolina. The pace is slow, the people are friendly, the seafood is delicious, the weather is perfect and there's plenty to inspire my new work!

    My hands have been in clay since I was 16 and I can't imagine a time when they won't be. As a functional potter, I believe there's a connection between user and maker, human hand to human hand that is exciting and fuels my passion to create in clay.
