CURRENT FEATURED ARTIST
My constant source of inspiration is the magic (but not the science) of how glazes interact with one another. Glazes melting together and almost out of control can be beautiful. This means a lot of failure but even on failed pieces, I look for some small spot where everything comes together just right. I think of all of my work as canvases waiting for glaze. And I believe it’s important to challenge myself, even though I often return to my comfort zone. I like to work with stoneware but have recently been working in porcelain, often using handmade stamps to create part of the design. I’ve worked in clay for more than 30 years, most of them at Wesleyan Potters, where I’ve been a member since 1988. My educational background includes a BAFA from the University of Bridgeport, numerous workshops and graduate level art courses.
