Artist's Statement

Pottery, books and gardens – these are the things I love to make and share. My pottery is inspired by French, English and early American country pottery. It is sturdy enough for everyday use yet elegant enough for special occasions. Use one of my bowls to mix cookie dough, bake custard, or serve your guests a fancy sauce. I also make pots for the garden: rain drums, herb stick labels, bells, birdbaths and more. I throw on a kick wheel, similar to the wheels potters have used for thousands of years, and do some hand building. I fire in a homemade Roman arch downdraft gas kiln.

Garden history, and gardens as a place to wander and linger, intrigue me. I like reading about gardens and writing about them. In my books I share what I have learned about both gardens and ceramics. Indeed, sharing is the part I enjoy most.
