Artist Statement

Using well-designed hand crafted pottery enhances our joy in daily activities as well as during special events. It is important to me that my pottery be comfortable in the hands, practical in form, and delightful to the eye. That is why I'm continually learning more about materials, surface decoration, techniques and putting it all together into the joy of making pottery.

About the Artist

've had my hands in clay for many years beginning with lessons at the Delaware Art Museum. There I learned the basics of hand building and beginning wheel throwing. It was on this foundation that I developed my skills and continued to work to achieve the subtle beauty and visual depth that results from thoughtfully glazing well-made pieces.

While engaged in a career of business and nonprofit management, I was able to continue learning from craft artists in the following organizations: Absalom Jones Community Center with Jodi Williams Montgomery Co. College, Maryland, where I experimented with sagger firing; Taos Institute of the Arts, New Mexico, where, under the guidance of a traditional Taos potter, I gathered the local micaceous pueblo clay, traditionally hand built and fired pottery; The Art League School, Alexandria, Virginia, where I continued to develop throwing skills; Vermont Clay Studio where I helped construct their gas kiln; Johnson State College, Johnson, Vermont, to learn majolica. Workshops with: Terri Gregory, Hoyt Barringer, Jayne Shatz, Mitch Lyons, and others

In Vermont I connected with other crafts people through membership in the VT Crafts Council and juried membership in Vermont Hand Crafters.

Currently I benefit from memberships in the Biggs Museum of American Art, Mispillion Art League and Rehoboth Art League.
