About the Artist

I played with clay from the stream bed near my home in Wichita Kansas when I was 7 years old. My dad taught me to throw pots at age 13 and later i attempted to survive as a potter in my 20's. To survive in Boston, I reluctantly decided to study to be a nurse practitioner for a 35 year career. 2 weeks after I retired I returned to pottery at Mudflat Pottery Studio and have been ecstatic, happily ever after, covered in mud.
I currently attempt to create unique pieces that feel wonderful to the hands as they are used, pots that enhance the flavor of food with their beauty. I'm always experimenting in different surfaces on functional pots, using glazes to emphasize the design. I rarely make the same thing twice. During the Covid pandemic, Mudflat was closed, so a friend and I made pottery in my backyard and created Backyard Pots as an outdoor studio.
