Most of my work is one of a kind as I am constantly evolving and wanting to try new forms and glazes. I currently work in porcelain and stoneware and use all food safe glazes. I really enjoy making functional pieces of art for the home. Thank you for stopping by my shop!

Love the brushed bronze pump. This will be perfect with the granite kitchen island in my new home. It arrived just a few days after ordering and was perfectly packaged.

About

A Clay Life Interrupted

I grew up in Helena, Montana surrounded by clay and amazing artists at Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts. I think I created my first pot out of the clay soil from the surrounding hills in Helena in grade school. While in school, I took classes in pottery and ceramic arts, when they were offered, and became proficient in throwing on the kick wheel.

My clay life was interrupted when I attended college. I majored in technical writing and left Montana to work in Silicon Valley at various high tech companies. As the web was developing in the early 90s, I started International Bed and Breakfast Pages, combining my love of bed and breakfasts with my love of design and color. During this time, my husband, two boys, and I moved around the country with stays in Washington State and Florida.

I came back to clay in 2013 when I took a community class and realized that I had been missing working in this amazing medium. Within two years, I had my own wheel at home and a kiln. From there, I kept working with various clays and surface treatments to create new pieces.

My art journey is far from complete and my process is evolving. I enjoy creating functional pieces of pottery for the home. The colors, techniques, and forms seem to be endless. I am not sure where this journey will end, but I can’t wait to see where this road takes me.

    I enjoy working with clay and throwing each piece of pottery on the wheel with an idea for function, color, and use. I love hearing from people who enjoy their morning cup of coffee using a pottery mug that I designed.
