Tableware from Sledding Hill Pottery
Pottery hand-crafted in the foothills of the Appalachians
My small studio, set at the edge of the woods, is an inspiring place to work. My pottery, like my surroundings, is functional and comfortable.

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.

Exciting news! My work is featured at the Starbrick Gallery in Nelsonville, Ohio along with painter Mary Chamberlain from Feb. 23 through March, 2018.

I am a proud board member of the Athens Art Guild.
