I derive great satisfaction from making things with my own hands, and I feel very grateful to have the opportunity to pursue my artistic goals on a full time basis.

My first career in the arts was in modern dance, and I hold a Master’s degree in that discipline. As a choreographer, I enjoyed the challenge of creating form and design in time and space. Later in life, seeking another form of creative expression, I found clay. The physicality of the work has similarities to the dance. Throwing porcelain on the wheel demands strength, concentration and coordination. I use yoga breathing principles to produce the delicate yet strong pressure needed to pull the clay smoothly and evenly upwards. I like to think I “choreograph” the clay so it directs the eye and the mind. The patterns in my crystalline glazes form through a natural process and flow randomly across the surface, creating a choreography of their own.
