About Me

By trade I am a Systems Analyst. By hobby I am a novice potter. I am so new I find it strange to call myself a potter. I got my wheel February 2013 and the kiln November 2013. Kiln was hooked up July 2015. My first bisque was September 27, 2015. I have been throwing since 2010. I make things for friends and family. I try to attend classes in my area when I can.

 

My mother introduced me to pottery in 1998 and passed on before I could get a good understanding of the process. It took me 12 years to come back to it and I have not stopped.

 

One of my biggest finds amongst my mother's tools was her finger prints in clay on her wire cutter handles and wooden caliper. I will shadow box them to pass on to the family member that takes interest in pottery, along with all my equipment. But until then, I want to throw as much as I can. And put smiles on as many folks as I can, with my gifts to them.
