art studio tour

May 13 -14th

​10 am - 4 pm

​It has also been a privilege to travel: the people and places enrich all of life, and influence each piece of art.

my story

THE WORKS:

Well-intentioned and well designed hand made tableware brings beauty and sophistication into our lives.  It's practically art.

Silversmithing is my new branch of creativity.  It started out as a complement to the ceramics, but has taken on a life of its own.

Pottery has opened many doors and I will be forever grateful to all the generous artist/instructors who have shared their skills and knowledge.  

Everything and everyone has a story to tell. My goal is to create a "still life" object that connects with you and your story and emotions.

JEWELRY

gallery events:

​I hope you can see traces of these places in my work:

Australia, China, Japan, Crete, Italy, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Ireland, and many US workshop destinations. 

Thank you for spending time on this site, and I hope you find something you like.  

Clay Mono Prints are created by layering patterns of coloured clay on a clay slab and then transferring that pattern onto a fabric substrate.  Each picture is only possible once, as that layer of clay is absorbed by the fabric, making each print unique.

I've been so lucky to take part in a world renowned ceramic course which gave the opportunity to learn from the best in their field and have access to studios and artists all over the world.

TILE WORK

​FUNCTIONAL CERAMICS

Tiles have allowed me to merge my love of clay with a need to make a graphic statement to hang on the wall.  Please enjoy!

SCULPTURE

​My family is first. Central to that is the idea that we must all keep learning every day - both to stay interested, and interesting to those around us.
