Making ceramic art. Handbuilding, throwing, and surface decoration is demonstrated in a fun-filled way, with a hands-on element for those who want to get a bit messy! Explanation of the firing process is also part of the studio tour experience for visitors.
Directions to studio:

My interest in ceramics began while working in Mexico. The incredible colors and variety of designs I saw there captivated my imagination. This experience motivated me to learn how to shape clay and led me to an apprenticeship with two master potters.
Now, almost twenty years later, I am still intrigued by the shapes that can be formed with clay by moving my hands. Looking at a finished piece; whether it is a bowl, cup, or vase I want the outside contour to please the eye.
On the surfaces of these forms I create designs that represent nature (mountains, leaves, salmon, etc). This imagery reflects my enjoyment of the natural world.
Studio will be open by appointment for the remainder of the year.
