Meet the Potter

I still remember watching someone throw a pot on the potter’s wheel when I was 5 years old. It seemed magical to me then and it continues to be magical for me today. From the first time I sat at the potter’s wheel, I was hooked!  Since then, I’ve attended many classes and workshops with clay artists, including: Silvie Granatelli, Bruce Gholson, Warren Mackenzie, Michael Simon, Mark Hewitt, Steve Braufman, Ben Owen, Charlie Riggs, Paul Soldner, David Shaner, Steven Hill, Suzanne Stephenson, Jeff Oestreich, Tom and Elaine Coleman and Xavier Gonzales.

I taught adult beginning and advanced wheel classes at the Durham Arts Council for over 12 years. I taught two workshops in Walnut Creek, CA in 2000 and 2002. In 2003, I had an exhibition of my work in Numazu, Japan.

When I show my work, I always include “Please Touch” signs on my shelves, but I hope that my pots, themselves, invite touch. Shapes, the feel of the pot, and the color are important to me. I love making pots and appreciate the fact that people enjoy owning them!
