"I am a retired teacher and tennis professional but have always been interested in ceramics. Thirty years ago, I began studying the art of ceramics, taking classes, workshops, and traveling throughout the U.S., Europe, China, and Northern Africa to develop more of an understanding and appreciation of the rich heritage of clay art.
I moved into my studio at Cattle Track Pottery about sixteen years ago. For the first seven, years my pottery time was limited to weekends and evenings. I now immerse myself full-time in clay art. Most of my work is on the wheel and functional in use, but I do some hand-building and altering for a fun variety. The pieces are high-fired stoneware and are dishwasher and microwave safe."
