My love affair with pottery began when I was a child. As far back as I can remember, there were two beautiful antique LB Norton stoneware jugs in our front hall. I loved these jugs and was fascinated with the cobalt decorations on them. I now display the jugs in my own home.
In my teen years, I became very interested in pottery, and started my collection. Little did I know that I would eventually be married to a potter and would actually be creating and selling my own pottery! I feel so fortunate, at this stage in my life, to be doing something that I have always loved. It has actually been a dream come true.
And so, my journey continues. When I walk into Studio 4 Potters, it is like another world for me… a peaceful world where I am with my family and potter friends who love the art of pottery.
When I make my pottery, it is done on a slab roller. The clay is rolled out flat. Then I decorate the clay with impressions that I press into the clay, shape the piece, and after bisque firing, hand glaze with colors that accentuate the design. The piece is fired in the kiln one more time. When the kiln is opened, out come my creations.
Most of my pottery is made with two things in mind: food and plants. My goal is to put every one of my plants into and serve our food on handmade pottery. My pottery is shared with our customers, who can enjoy the feel and beauty of handmade pottery and start their own collections by purchasing it at the Studio 4 Potters gallery.
