Being a Virginia native, my inspiration comes from nature, my mother and my Native American heritage. My creative side came out late in life and is ever growing but the pottery is always functional and for everyday use.
Creating a form from a ball of clay, on a wheel, has intrigued me since I was a little girl when my mother took me to a pottery studio in North Carolina. I love that a simple ball of clay can be transformed into a creation that is visually, aesthetically and tactically pleasing. My utilization of glaze, texture, carving, and altering a pot in many ways, shows how the clay was once very pliable before reaching it’s final destination as stoneware.
