I seem to be in a perpetual state of starting over. These past three years since I have been back stateside have been an upheaval of moving homes, studios, and jobs.

Thankfully, I seem to have found a place to settle in with a home, job, and studio space!

The winter of 2014/2015 has not been easy for studio work.  Here in Michigan we reached temperatures of -20 degrees ferinheight or lower!  My studio just happens to be in an uninsulated pole barn so freezing clay and glazes, as well as freezing hands became a problem....

I keep waiting for the moment when life is going to slow down. A moment where I feel like I can breathe without worrying when I will have to start running again (metaphorically speaking, of course). But, I don’t think that actually happens. Since leaving Orkney it has...

Capturing words and ordering them into a line to create a compelling and heart felt sentence is not the easiest task. I consider myself a decent writer, but sometimes I struggle to render a thought on paper that is as beautiful as the images and feelings in my head. Wh...

I love being part of a group studio. And as studios go CMU has a pretty decent one. The opportunity to work beside other talented potters sharing ideas and smiles is a blessing. Everyday opportunities to grow as a potter and improve my art arise from theses interaction...

I have been told by several people that I don’t take nearly enough pictures of my work.

 

 It’s true. I don’t.

 

With the images I have posted in my gallery you would never guess that I make 12-15 pieces every work day I’m in the studio. Which after firing days and refinin...
