During the day I am a lab technician in soil and environmental sciences, while at night and on the weekends, I'm working in the studio making all sorts of things. Simply put, I’m a big fan of clay, 24/7.

I grew up in Maine and slightly recall playing around with some handbuilding when I was in middle school. In fact, I’m pretty sure that my Mom still has some figures that I made proudly on display somewhere in her house.

I've dabbled in all sorts of art mediums, never really honing in on one, but enjoying a little bit of everything. A few years ago, when I moved to Northern Virginia, I happened across a pottery studio at a local recreation center, and decided to sign up for a wheel throwing class. This is probably the best decision I've ever made.

Now here I am 5 years later (with some small breaks in between) still spending as much time as I can playing with clay. Currently I am a member of a community studio at the YMCA in Blacksburg, VA. I hope to continue learning, creating, and expanding on my skills and techniques. Working with ceramics is going to be a life long hobby for me, and I am happy to keep sharing my creations with people.

    By day I'm a research technician working with soil, by night I'm an aspiring potter. What can I say, I'm just a big fan of clay! I've been working with clay for 4 years, and am currently focused on hand building and making functional pieces.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

While I can make custom or personalized items, the time to fulfill these orders is very time consuming. I do not have full control over my firing schedule for items, which means that sometimes things can take a little longer to process. If you still want to inquire, please contact me, and let's see what we can work out!

Care instructions

The glazes that I use are all lead-free and food safe (unless otherwise mentioned in the item details).

Items are also microwave and dishwasher safe, though items with metal additions are not. This is something that will be mentioned in the item details as well.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact me!
