Creating art has been a great big love of mine for as long as I can remember. I never disliked the academics of school but in my second year of college, while writing a particularly cumbersome paper, I had an epiphany: There are schools where every class feels like an elective. All the exams are projects. The book room is an art store. What was I waiting for? So, off I went to art school where I majored in ceramics with a side of photography and jewelry. Right after graduation I started teaching at Bryn Athyn College. 14 years later I'm still loving teaching and now have 3 crazy wonderful boys to fill up every second that I'm not in my studio.
This site represents a sampling of my latest work. I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am to my community and family for supporting my ceramic dreams all these years. I'd sure love to keep making art for the rest of my life and I aim to never be satisfied. I hope I will always be dreaming up new designs and perfecting new techniques. Playing in my studio and interacting with clay friends and students makes me incredibly happy. It's a tremendous blessing to have this be such a big part of my life. I do not take it for granted.
Thanks for visiting my site and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I do lots of commissions and check out the News to see where I'll be selling my work in the near future. Have a wonderful day and go play in the mud!
All my work is electric fired (cone 5) stoneware and is food/dishwasher safe.
