All of my work is made at my studio in New York and Connecticut. Each piece, whether wheel thrown, slab built, slip cast or made combining these methods, is designed by me and crafted and glazed by me or under my supervision. The oxidation firing to a durable stoneware temperature is also done in the studio. I have been working professionally in ceramics for 27 years.
I studied at Smith College, New York University Graduate School, Corcoran School of Art, Penland and Greenwich House Pottery. I am a founder of Tribeca Potters, a studio now in Long Island City shared by several other studio potters.
My love of ceramics – particularly stoneware – comes from a simple respect for form and the unending ability of clay to respond to be abilities to create forms I find pleasing and functional. And I like to glaze in a manner that responds to form – pouring and dipping. The thrown bottles and cylinder vessels – grouped in 3 or 5, are examples of this. I also offer the Metro collection which is reminiscent of the 50’s, glazed in gorgeous pastels, in bowls and vases.
