I love all the many possibilities of what clay can do. During my career I have made everything from fun small pins to a serious large room-size sculptural installation. I started out as a functional potter. Then, I ran a successful wholesale pin business that gave me time to make sculpture. After receiving an MFA from Alfred University, I created “Dark Garden,” a large installation that has been shown in several museums and other venues.
Clay is my pathway into the natural world. The pottery forms celebrate growth and abundance in nature, while the sculpture investigates problematic influences of our culture on the environment. With studios in rural Alfred, NY and Boston MA, I continue to make functional and sculptural pottery as well as small fun sellable items. Everything is one-of-a-kind and built by hand or wheel thrown. I especially enjoy meeting customers while doing open studios with this variety of work.
