My high school had a ceramics program and I fell in love with pottery there. In 1973, after studying ceramics at the University of Oregon, I began my career as a studio potter. Consistently over these many years hand building with colored clays has been my focus and my passion. ‘Nerikomi’ is the Japanese term which describes this process of creating patterns with colored clays. I find that there are endless possibilities for imagery, pattern, and color combinations. It is always exciting when I slice into a block to see the end result of my efforts. Once I make a block it becomes a series – or a limited edition. Being “old school” I have a gas kiln and am still attached to the affects of gas firing on pots.
Before the pandemic I was doing shows and studio sales to sell my work. In 2020 I opened an etsy store in addition to my website. I ship pots, have driveway sales at my home in Eugene and sell by appointment. Send me your name and email for future driveway sale notifications.
