Pat describes her journey into creating with clay and glazes: “I first got hooked on clay when I signed up for a class in sculpture. I liked the creativity of working with clay and that led to slab and wheel work. It is a never-ending process that you can get lost in for hours. I enjoy making animals. That satisfies my sculptural urges, but I also enjoy making¬†¬† functional ware. I like knowing my functional pottery can be put in the microwave oven and is dishwasher-safe. There’s nothing like serving food from beautiful casseroles and dishes that I have made.”
