“I have always been involved in arts and crafts, and it was a great joy to discover our Artisan Complex many years ago, a discovery that led me back to oil painting, watercolor, pencil drawing, and then to our clay studio.   My love of hand-built pottery has just expanded over the years. I find it personally fulfilling to be creating new pieces of pottery and to have our wonderful gift shop to display and sell our creations.

“Most of what I produce is functional pottery. After deciding what to make, I construct the basic form and hand-engrave the design into the clay. After the piece has dried and been fired, I apply the glaze by pouring, dipping or painting. A second firing completes the piece and it’s ready for use.”
