ABOUT ME

 

I want my pieces to be the first thing people reach for whenever food and drink are involved.

 

I spent my early adult life figuring out what I could do that would bring me joy and maybe a little money.  In 2003 I took my first pottery class and found something

that would be a part of my life forever.  A few years after I started I started apprenticing and managing at Hinckley Pottery in DC.  I have been teaching for almost 11 years now. 

 

I love the way that pottery becomes a part of a person's life.  It participates 

in the big and small moments.

ABOUT THE POTTERY

 

All my pieces are food, microwave and dishwasher safe.  I like to keep my glazes simple and let the shape of the pot be the focus.  I want it to feel comfortable in your hands.  I mainly work in stoneware and fire in a gas kiln, with the occasional wood firing mixed in.
