For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be an artist and a scientist. When I was about to turn 40, I took my first throwing class and immediately fell in love with clay.

My ceramic education has been self-directed, taking classes at art centers, community colleges and attending numerous workshops. The more I learned, the more I realized that working in clay combined art and science and I found myself right where I wanted to be.

My passion is for functional pots that you can hold and caress and that have meaning in your everyday life - coffee in the morning with a favorite mug, your hands familiar with every curve and ridge.

My work is wheel-thrown and sometimes altered. I prefer using porcelain because it enhances the vibrancy and richness of the glazes. What I want to create are pots that are graceful, alive and quietly ask to be touched.
