In 1966, I began teaching Physical Education and Math. But, at Capuchino High School where I was teaching, I started doing Ceramics. Quit my job in 1975 to begin Ceramics. Yes!!

Narrative

Personally, I love playing and working in clay and paint. Professionally, my work in clay is in two directions. I create small "precious" covered jars, and bird sculptures, teapots, etc., and, I create architectural scale wallworks that are painted, like murals.
Technically, my jars and birds are wheel-thrown, high-fired. The birds are raven and crow images that are thrown and then altered and reassembled. I love playing with the birds as I add stacked or gathered objects to attach to them, that they appear to carry or stand on.
I love the process of clay, and, with it, the endless ability to entertain new ideas.
Whatever is being created, it is usually metaphoric, it is all a part of a much larger spiritual journey of discovery. I honor the process.
