I am elbow deep in love with all things clay! Clay found me by accident, and I've been hooked ever since.
My utilitarian, decorative and sculptural work can be wheel thrown or hand built. I make traditional stoneware work that is often altered and almost always decorated with multiple glazes carefully hand-mixed, applied in layers, glaze fired, and slow cooled.
Most recently, I've been experimenting with a variety of outdoor raku and saggar firing techniques, which gives me the opportunity for more hands-on involvement in that final firing process where all the magic happens.
I teach classes and workshops, and can most often be found in my home studio in Downingtown, PA where my rescue dogs keep me company while I immerse myself in this labor of love.
