About

I fell in love with pottery in high school. I had signed up for a fiber arts class, which was held in the same room as the pottery class. As I fumbled with my lumpy ball of home-spun yarn, I wistfully watched the smooth clay being transformed on the potter's wheel into a functional creation whose roots are ancient and elemental to humans. After switching classes, it didn't take long before a love of clay had sunken into my bones.

Here it is, years later, after college, marriage, working full time and starting a family, the children are off to school and I have returned to my passion. The play room is cleared out and turned into a studio. Now I have the place, and the space, to create these forms that are inside of me.

With the dawning of full-day kindergarten, I was faced with a choice. Get a regular job, or follow my dream and become a real potter. I went with my dream.

Shipping
Some of my listings are ready to ship, but many are made to order and these will require 2 to 3 weeks to compleate. Pottery is a slow process, so plan ahead for holidays!

All my pottery is carefully packaged in bubble wrap and packed in packing peanuts to assure its safe arrival. Most often, I will use post consumer packing material in an effort to cut down on waste in landfills and keep shipping costs lower for you.
