I would describe my pottery as fine art with an everyday purpose — a true marriage of function and expression. I’ve always loved to draw and my earliest subject was flowers. First with crayon, then with ink and now on clay. When I learned to throw pots, I instinctively began covering them with carvings. Drawing on three dimensional forms has fascinated me for 25 years. It intensified when I moved up north. I gather inspiration from our shorelines and the plants that cover our summer landscape. In winter I find them in my imagination. I carve with unplanned abandon — striving to make my marks loose and spontaneous — as if they grew from the piece itself.

Visit my studio year-round to view work both in progress and available for purchase. During the art tour try the tools and techniques I use and contribute to a group clay project commemorating my return to the tour. The studio is nestled in the woods 3 miles south of downtown Lake Tomahawk just off Hwy. 47 on Pigeon Road. I am open year-round by appointment or chance. Calling ahead is suggested (except during the art tour). Small private classes are available. Contact me for details.
