In addition to being a studio potter, I am also a Colorado Master Gardener through the CSU Extension Routt County and have been writing a weekly column for the Steamboat Today Newspaper since 2000.


Working mostly in porcelain and white stoneware, I specialize in one-of-a-kind pottery fired to cone 5/6 (2170F) in an electric kiln. My pieces are very colorful, creative and whimsical as well as being useful. I am a founding member of the Steamboat Clay Artisans.


Please visit my etsy shop on the Web where the latest creations are posted for sale as soon as they come out of the kiln. I ship anywhere in the world and am happy to consider customized commissions.
