“Being a Virginia native, my inspiration comes from nature, my mother and my Native American heritage. My creative side came out late in life and is ever-growing, but the pottery is always functional and for everyday use and enjoyment.
Creating a form, from a ball of clay on a wheel, has intrigued me ever since I was a little girl and my mother took me to a pottery studio in North Carolina. I love that a simple ball of clay can be transformed into a creation that is visually and aesthetically pleasing. My utilization of glaze, texture, carving, and altering a pot in many ways shows how the clay was once very pliable before reaching its final destination as stoneware.”
