I had the wonderful good fortune to grow up on a farm in southern Minnesota where I spent many happy childhood hours making mud pies. Excellent preparation for a potter. For nearly 20 years I have worked in porcelain, throwing on the wheel as well as handbuilding. I use various decoration techniques: Asian painting, carving, and texturing with antique linens and Indian textile printing stamps. Porcelain is a beautiful, elegant medium. My goal is to do it justice, making pots people will want to own and use.
