My pottery reflects my personality – whimsical, colorful, and down to earth. I started my ceramic career creating small gnomes along with little houses and other gnome accessories. The pieces are colored solely with underglaze to give everything a raw, earthy look. My bowls and mugs are clear glazed to be food safe, over the underglaze. All of my work is handbuilt. I am greatly influenced by architecture and textiles, and love to combine different patterns and colors to get just the right balance of interesting without being chaotic. If my work makes someone smile, I consider it a success.
