I have always enjoyed having coffee/tea out of a beautifully made pottery piece or a wine glass you enjoy holding just as much as you enjoy the wine it contains. It is my goal to create functional pieces, designed to add joy and delight to ones life. Working in clay allows me the opportunity to share this love with my customers no matter if it is a small mug or a wedding fountain.
From handles that fit and feel good to surfaces full of texture and visual appeal. I enjoy the parameters functional pottery challenges me with as much as I enjoy the freedom that comes with non-functional Raku, which is another side of my pottery experience. Still challenged by form, line, texture and shape as with functional pottery, Raku allows me to focus on the piece as it is and not how it functions. The exploration is limitless.
With an education background, I enjoy teaching and helping people discover art.
