Handcrafted Quality

After teaching for fifteen years and having lived many experiences, my work is now fixated on the inspiring combination of clay and fiber.  I am spellbound by the raku firing process, its surprises, and earthiness. I am energized and challenged to combine my two passions and achieve their harmonious relationship to one another by playing off of each medium with texture, color, and form. The felted wool fibers compliment the Raku vessels while tantalizing the senses. The addition of glass beads and precious metal clay help create the magic in each piece. Combining these materials challenges my creativity while stretching my imagination to see what adventures I will encounter.

The creative spirit is alive and well.....and can not be contained!
