I grew up in New Hampshire and fell in love with clay during a high school art class. Fast forward 23 years, and after raising a daughter, I enrolled in the NH Institute of Art and took my love of clay to the next level. It was during this time that I met Jeff Brown, a pottery instructor at the Institute. Eventually we shared a studio in Northwood, NH. In 2010 we made the decision to return to Jeff’s home state of North Carolina, establishing our new home and studio in the pottery community of Seagrove.
Most of my work is functional, wheel thrown forms. I enjoy carving flowers and leaves through slip covered clay, a process called sgraffito. I fire in a gas kiln, here at our Seagrove studio and participate in wood firings whenever the opportunity arises.
I am a blog writer and that is where I share our daily life experiences as working potters in Seagrove, NC.
