I would describe my pottery as fine art with an everyday purpose — a marriage of function and expression with a nod to the natural world. I always enjoy hearing that my pieces have a special spot in someone’s home, and are also used at their table.
I’ve loved to draw since I was a kid. One of my earliest subjects were flowers — first with crayon, then with ink, and now on clay. When I learned to throw pots, I instinctively began covering them with images and patterns. Drawing on three-dimensional forms has fascinated me for more than 30 years. After moving from an urban environment to the Northwoods 20 years ago, my influences evolved. The plants, animals, and landscape became an undeniable visual resource. I use a variety of illustration techniques including carving, stamping, and sgraffito in my work. I’m always striving to make my marks loose and spontaneous — as if they grew from the piece itself.
Pigeon Road Pottery is a full-time pottery studio nestled in the woods 3 miles south of downtown Lake Tomahawk. Visitors are welcome year ’round by appointment only. My day-to-day studio time varies due to family responsibilities. Please call, text, or email ahead of time to avoid disappointment. I will do my best to accommodate you. You may also find my work locally at Artistree Gallery in Land O’ Lakes, Wisconsin. Visit my website for other current show and event information.
