Building with clay is my passion. There is always something new to learn. I can help you express your ideas in clay or am available for consultations on building your own studio.

From the beginning, throwing on the wheel was my favorite way to work with clay. My goal is to help you have fun with clay as an experiment cultivating beauty in the messy movements of wheel throwing--in terms of sporting a face covered in clay splotches (like me) or ending up with a piece you proudly display on a shelf in your home.
I love working with all clay bodies utilizing various techniques and surface treatments. Building a relationship with any process takes time, patience, and understanding. My focus as an instructor is to make this process enjoyable as you accomplish your personal clay objectives.

For me, working with clay on the pottery wheel is a meditative escape from the busyness of life. It's also just plain fun to get your hands dirty and make something for yourself or to share with others. I will help you learn the basics of wheel throwing while exploring your creativity through clay in a relaxed environment.
