About

Connecting with Pots :)

As a painter and art teacher, I learned ceramics with my students and in Summer classes, and ended up running a big , bustling clay studio with a wonderful atmosphere! Soon, everybody was drinking from mugs that someone had made in the studio. I loved it, so when we came to Sarasota three years ago, I set up a small workshop in our house studio and began making functional ware. I learn something new every day and it has been wonderful to focus on clay and all aspects of the production. While business and glaze chemistry are my biggest struggle, I absolutely love playing with form and function. While I can make you a set of everything you see in the shop, I also enjoy making one of a kind pieces, and thinking of fresh shapes and designs.

The best thing about making pottery is trying to create beautiful objects that make people slow down and enjoy them with every use. I love it when people say "I think of you every time I drink my coffee!"

In the video below, you can see me throwing a bottle shape and then blowing in it, to expand the walls and give the bottle more volume!

    I love art, working with people and traveling. I spent over 20 years teaching all sorts of art in international schools. I fell in love with ceramics and moved to Sarasota, FL with my family. I make pottery for as many people as possible!
