I’ve always loved making useful objects that people can integrate into their daily lives. My work as a ceramic craftsperson has been influenced by my previous career as a jeweler. Creating hand-dyed and inlaid jewelry probably drew me to the unusual colors of agate-ware pottery. I bring a jeweler’s sensibility to finishing ceramic surfaces and creating small-patterned designs.  Moving to ceramics provided the hands-on contact which was never present when making jewelry, where tools always come between the maker and the material. I love the tactile aspects of clay. Making objects that people enjoy using,makes me remarkably happy.
