My interest in clay began in my early teens when my aunt taught me to paint on pre formed pieces.  I still have the first bowl I decorated, a Mother’s Day gift, in 1958.  After graduate school I took a summer class in throwing pots.  I was hooked.  I made clay pieces off and on for the next thirty years.  When I retired as a high school math teacher in 1998, I was able to devote a lot of my time to my clay projects.  We set up a small studio in our basement in suburban Maryland and I began taking informal classes in earnest.  A move to the RogueValley several years ago brought me into contact with a wide variety of very skilled potters.  I have learned a great deal from them and broadened the range of my work significantly.  I have a lovely studio with fabulous views of our valley which is a constant source of inspiration.  My work continues to evolve as I learn more techniques and develop new and exciting glazes.
