I grew up in South Dakota and attended that odd high school with a well-developed ceramics program. Then, after studying art at the University of Puget Sound I moved to Gig Harbor where I now live and work.
Both the process and products of doing ceramics feel like a relief from the urgency of daily life. I enjoy the methodical, step-by-step nature of pottery as well as its physical demands. I find it comforting that people can make beautiful, functional art without power tools or precision measurements when much of life revolves around numbers, machines, and deadlines.
