About

nurture gaia. create balance. exist unbound.

It all begins with a ball of clay.

Hi, my name is Cheryl. I believe magic begins from the most benign of circumstances. I think that is the element of pottery that fascinated me as a young child. When I took my first pottery class decades later, that fascination was confirmed. Pottery is alchemy.

Since then I have thrown hundreds of cups, bowls, vases and jars. The more I create, the more I learn about the craft and myself. Each piece I throw or hand build begins as a seed of thought married to a mound of earth. From firing to glazing, it takes on new life and new dimension.

Over time, my work has been used to celebrate the union of two souls. It has been used to serve meals, brighten up a room, or to add a splash of color on a table or mantle. In every one of those instances, I have the honor of sharing in a moment of beauty or love or comfort. In those moments, I remember that in some way - we are all connected.

And it all begins with a ball of clay. I love that.

    I do my best work when I get out of my conventional mind and into my intuition. This applies to many areas of my life, especially pottery. I like to make stoneware that is unique, functional and feels good in your hands.

Thanks for visiting my shop. My work is all high fire wheel thrown or hand built pottery designed for functional use within your home. You'll find that a lot of my work features texture. I love the tactile experience we have when handling items and the depth that texture gives many translucent and vibrant glazes. All work is food safe unless otherwise noted.
