Clay is an inherent part of who I am, a natural expression and extension of my vocabulary. I am happiest when creating. I personally design, throw, form, glaze, fire and photograph each piece of work from my studio. I love clay. I love having my hands in clay, creating beautiful forms and textured, tactile pieces.
I enjoy the satisfaction of throwing and producing well designed, functional works. Functional pottery should start with form in mind. I design and throw each piece to work at its fullest potential. Coffee cups are designed to keep coffee warm and have a comfortable handle. Bowls have a beautiful curve as well as a lovely rim to hold as the bowl frames the contents within it. I strive for my pottery to have elegance and balance in your hands; it should fit into your life and into your hands in a beautiful, satisfying way.
I live a charmed life on Fern Street, in Indianola, Washington, where my studio is in my forested backyard. I am living the dream with my husband, two sons, a Great Pyrenees, and five pugs who litter my studio as well as rule my life.
