I began pottery classes after a friend urged me to attend an open house at a studio near my home. I signed up for beginners’ class and was immediately hooked! The physical nature of working with clay; wedging, throwing, building, was something I could learn without an art background or natural skill. I am inspired by nature; leaves, landscapes, as well as cityscapes. My work is functional. A “one of a kind” cheese tray or nut dish can make a gathering of one or two friends feel like a party!
