Announcement   To create timeless objects by hand that speak to people through their form and color from one of the world's most abundant natural resources, is a magical gift.

I am a dedicated and creative ceramic artist based in New York City, and thrilled to have discovered my passion for working with clay. Whether forming pieces on the potter's wheel, or constructing by hand, I am continually in awe at the limitless possibility to shape lasting pieces out of clay which make eyes light up and faces glow in delight.

About

I love playing with color and form to create unique functional art to be used and cherished.

I never dreamed of being a ceramic artist, and now I can't envision a life without it. After working years as a freelance journalist in Africa, then as a documentary filmmaker, and becoming a psychotherapist, I was fortunate to unexpectedly find a new passion, clay.
I earned a scholarship to study ceramics at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, in Colorado, and received residencies to study with master potters in Japan, and then Korea. To express myself through clay in color and forms that speak to people is an immense honor and gift. Thank You for visiting my shop.
