[Artist Name]

My first clay experience was introduced to me by Betty Woodman at the City of Boulder Pottery Lab in 1972.

After 10 years of classes at the City Lab with a variety of different instructors sharing their expertise and techniques, I had an invitation to join the Boulder Potters’ Guild in 1983. I know that the diverse artistry of the students, teachers and workshop presenters then and now have had great influence on the work I enjoy creating today.

While creating I love thinking about the colors I will use whether I am carving, impressing or throwing. My work is often hand built and fired in a mid range electric kiln to cone 6. I continue to enjoy throwing functional tableware as well.

For me, there continues to be a fascination of working in clay and the life long learning in the years ahead.
