About

Welcome to my Gallery Store
Thank you for visiting!

This online Gallery Store is where I am currently posting my larger, gallery-quality show pieces, available to you directly from my studio here in north central Massachusetts. I also sell smaller, gallery-quality pieces (cups, bowls, and more) at my online Pottery Shop on Etsy.

Bio

I received my BFA in Ceramics from the N.Y.S.C.C. at Alfred University and MFA in Ceramics from Ohio University. My professional experience includes being an Artist-in-Residence with studio potter John Glick in Farmington Hills, MI, as well as at Guldagergård in Skælskør, Denmark, the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN and the Worcester Center for Crafts in Worcester, MA. I have exhibited my work internationally in juried and invitational exhibitions, as well as taught workshops around North America at craft centers and universities. My work is in numerous private and public collections including the Taipei County Yingee Ceramics Museum in Taipei, Taiwan, the Guldagergård Museum of International Ceramic Art in Skælskør, Denmark, and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Fort Wayne, IN.

Artist Statement
I make pottery that brings elegance, sophistication, and merriment to the everyday rather than saving it only for special occasions. I have a diverse range of influences, and seek to marry the splendor of past eras with a modern desire for beauty and utility. My influences for these Victorian modern porcelain vessels range from 18th century silver service pieces to couture clothing and from Art Nouveau illustrations to cake fondant. Such diversity combined with my own personality as a maker culminates into a unique style. Graceful forms, refined patterns, and lively colors convey a design that is robust as well as elegant and joyful.
