My clay career began in college and I was “hooked” after my first class.  Taking a lump of clay and forming it into a delicate cup or bowl with my hands is still magical to me.  Experimenting with glazes adds the chemistry (and frustration, at times), which is endless and fascinating. I love making utilitarian ware to cook in and eat and drink from, as each piece is designed to be well-balanced, functional, and useful for decades.
