    my story

    i fire my work in a kiln which was a surprise christmas gift from my husband. i named my kiln betty and i say she is my fourth and most termpermental child. i tuck my pieces in and the anxiously wait while i leave her to her work. ceramics is the only art form where all four elements: earth, water, air and fire factor themselves into your finished product. i have learned that clay has a personality and a will of its own which i find quite beautiful; its my job to guide it along and offer encouragement, to show it what it could be if we trust the process

    i think you will soon find i have a healthy obsession for color and its ability to express what words cannot. my color stories will always include desert tones, it simply cannot be helped! the desert is one of my most persuasive sources of inspiration.

    i look to nature for the purest expression of beauty. i love a clever cover of a song, sheets warm from the dryer, the twinkling night sky when you are out in the country, sitting on the porch with nowhere to be, unglazed terracotta pots with a patina only time can issue, a genuine expression of love, wind tousled hair, the final tap of a wooden spoon on a slow simmering pot and the call for everyone to gather, the smell of the desert after rainfall, connection when you were strangers just a moment before, love notes from flowers. creativity, community and kindness are especially important to me.

     as an artist i aim to create ceramics that are thoughtfully designed and beautifully made. there is a warmth and grounding effect that radiate from items crafted by hand with care and intention, they carry the ability to elevate the ordinary. the pieces we collect for our homes allow us to attend to each moment more fully, draw more attention to the significance of daily rituals, savor small moments, and find joy in the act of homemaking
