Nature inspires my work which revolves around the leaves I find on my daily walks. I love exploring the texture of leaf veins and all variety of impressions on clay. My whimsical Mother Mud People sculptures were inspired by a statue I found below a larch tree in Hoyt Arboretum. I create my own little people with textured “tattoos” all over them using leather embossing tools.

My stoneware bowls and dishes have a bright, cheerful tone as I love color. All of my work is hand-built, not thrown. I’m inspired by Art Nouveau (1887-1918) and its near worship of nature-in-art. Many of my bowls have an irregular rim as I prefer clay’s organic nature. I spend a lot of time on the details, because art should look beautiful from any angle, whether viewed from afar or up close. All my pottery is created in my backyard studio.
