For as far back as I can remember, I wanted to earn a living by selling things I created with my own hands. The realization of this lifelong dream is something I am truly grateful for. I went from being a young, slightly unfocused college art student who casually stumbled into pottery to a committed potter in love with the feel of wet, slippery clay between my fingertips. The rhythmic process of slapping a lump of clay on the wheel and coaxing each piece into shape is still something that enthralls and challenges me, even 30-plus years later.
I live in Lincoln, Vermont. and my work is inspired by the nature I see in my own backyard. My stoneware is fully functional and displays an elegant and decorative design.
