My work is simple and honest. I love the process of making pieces and am inspired by the beauty of nature. Sunflowers and leaves are favorite subjects given their movement and character. I took up pottery 20 years ago at a time when I needed a distraction. I stumbled upon a private class and was instantly hooked by the fellowship and encouragement of other potters, by the feel of the clay, and by the ability to mold the clay to reflect my appreciation of this God-given gift.
