I have always spent a lot of time in the water. I love the oceans and beaches out east as well as lakes and rivers in Wisconsin. The sense of water and movement is something that I try to create when carving and glazing pottery. The Pottery Shop is a great environment to work in. People are friendly, supportive and really creative! I make wheel thrown, functional pottery. I like to alter pots and add texture to the clay surface. One thing I really like about pottery is that there are so many ways to enhance a pot with texture and glaze.
