I was lucky. Instead of going to school to learn pottery I studied under a master potter. As soon as I moved to Crestone over 20 years ago, I met a wonderful woman who, over the years, became my mentor and teacher, not only in pottery, but also in life lessons. I also have taken many workshops with world-renowned ceramic artists who taught me new skills and how to find my own voice in clay.

Clay is amazing in the shapes and forms it can take. My work is about movement. I like to take the clay to it’s limits and feel it come into it’s own shape, like a dance. The clay and I moving in unison deciding what it will become. My work can be seen at the Crestone Artisan Gallery and I teach a limited number of workshops and classes.
