About the Artist
I love to cook, to eat, and to play in clay. How grateful I am that my passions all spin together at the pottery studio, as most of my clay creations center around food. Garlic grater dishes and garlic storage jars. Bowls for berries and bowls for soup. Mugs for coffee and trays for treats. I love to glaze with certain foods in mind and to serve my favorite foods on my stoneware art. Many of my wares also incorporate a freehand slip trailing design technique: it's really fun to doodle with clay! By the way, all my pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe, as well as food safe.
About three years ago I was accepted by and subsequently joined Hotpoint Emporium, a juried artist cooperative in Bristol RI. It's been great to be part of this amazing group of inspiring artisans! In this complicated time of coronavirus, I am so grateful to have this small and safe place to showcase my art and to support other local artists.
I have been potting for twenty two years, selling primarily at artist markets, open studios and small stores. Recently I exited from my college counseling career, and I now I get to change up my relationship to clay. No longer will pottery be just a side affair, it’s now becoming my main squeeze. I can’t wait to spend more time covered in mud, learning new techniques and indulging my clay obsession. Who knows where my wheel will take me as my pottery adventure evolves.
