“Have nothing

in your house

that you

do not know

to be useful, or

believe to

be beautiful.”

William Morris

Artist’s Statement:


I have always been fascinated by clay.  I have been collecting ceramics since my early adulthood and love the form and possibility of objects made with clay. 

I moved to Vancouver Island in 2006. In 2009 I began formal instruction in clay with Muriel Sibley, Wintercreek Pottery, a local potter.  I took to clay quite quickly and had my own studio within my first year of throwing. I have continued to explore clay with a variety of mediums, clay bodies, firing techniques and instructors.

My pieces fall generally in the functional range. I do a limited range of art pottery pieces in Raku, tile and specialty fired styles (soda or salt)

My influences are based in Antique Asian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese, Ceramics and Porcelain.  I am lucky to have experienced and collected the works of Judi Dyelle, Robin Hopper, Harlan House and Kayo O'Young.  Their beautiful work inspire me as I strive to create my own voice in clay.
