Wheel Thrown Pottery

I started making pots in 2003, my freshman year of high school, and it was then I fell in love. I started selling them in 2007, my senior year. I went to the University of Wisconsin Whitewater for a year, but in the fall of 2008, I decided not to go back to college. Instead I dove into my passion full time, making pottery. The past decade I have dabbled in different firing processes, primarily focusing on Raku, but in 2016 I started to focus on functional wares, that I could make year round (Wisconsin winters can be brutal).
I love that my newest body of work can be a part of your daily routine. It brings me joy to know I have crafted something that someone can enjoy every time they use it.

    I create one of a kind pottery, to be used in your daily routine. I love designing new products as well as adding my designs to familiar forms. Knowing they will bring joy into your life with each use is part of why I LOVE MY JOB :)

All of my work is thrown on the potters wheel and is glaze fired to Cone 5. I use 3 different claybodies. A red, a dark brown, and a speckled white.
All of my glazes are food safe, and can go in the microwave and dishwasher. (Although I always recommend hand washing)
