While I’d worked with clay as a teenager, there was a many-year gap before I returned to clay; we built my studio shortly after moving to Athens, Ohio in 2012. I’m newly retired - first from a career in classical music where I played and taught viola, and secondly as an Instructional Designer and User Experience Designer. I consider work in both fields to be user focused and strive to bring that awareness to my work as a potter.
I sell my work at the Athens Farmer's Market / Art Market most Saturday mornings. During the winter the market is inside the Market on State, Athens, Ohio.
You can also purchase my work at the Southeast Ohio History Center gift shop, Dairy Barn Arts Center, Bella Vino, Starbrick Gallery in Nelsonville and other local shops.
I am a proud board member of the Athens Art Guild.
The colors in these pieces flood me with memories of a favorite Aunt.
Her style was eclectic, her colors passionate.
Each mug holds around 14 ounces with room for memories.
Covered sugar bowl and pitcher, bright and cheerful.
Room for 12 ounces of non-carbonated liquids.
One in a series of wine goblets.
10" red serving bowl.
Stoneware nested plates.
Cups for sipping morning coffee.
Covered bowls are perfect for tea or sugar.
Much of my work is inspired by nature, including this bowl.
Mugs, bowls and all the rest wash up well in the dishwasher.
