An adult ed class introduced me to clay and I was instantly hooked. Due to life’s realities I drifted in and out of pottery, with years between short bursts of creativity. Now at last I have almost all the time I want to spend in the studio. I still have to eat, sleep, and take an occasional shower!
I have no particular style – mostly hand building, some wheel work, some functional pieces, some decorative pieces, mostly mid-fire, some high fire at LBCC. Not really a novice but still constantly learning. I know almost nothing about glaze formation so rely on commercial products. The majority of my work is fired in my home electric kiln at cone 6.
I remain a hobbyist, giving most of my pots to family and friends but do like to participate in the WCG shows.
Getting a slow start in 2018.
