My fascination with the process of manipulating a lump of mud into something lovely started in childhood, decades into the forgotten past.

 

Today I use the lessons then learned to fabricate my pottery. My  delight is in making a beautiful form that is also useful. My favorite pieces,  thus include the large platter that is the table centerpiece or the vase that  is equally handsome with or without flowers to the mug that becomes the  favorite companion through the day’s work or the lowly colander that brings art into the kitchen.

Most of my work is unique as I do not repeat a given motif. All is stoneware, chosen for its durability. Many of the glazes I use reflect the  sparkle and shine of the Carrabassett River, which my studio overlooks, or  the subtle colors that I find in the rocks and plants of the north Maine woods.
