I am a functional ceramist from Asheville, North Carolina. I was raised in northeast Florida, and I began throwing on the wheel in January of 2008. I began by taking weekly classes at a local ceramics studio, but before long I wanted more instruction and training. This led to intensive self study and an Independent Study Project through New College of Florida in the spring of 2009. In the spring of 2010 I traveled to Cambridge, Massachusetts to study and work with artist Judy Motzkin, and in the fall of 2010 I relocated from Jacksonville, Florida to Asheville, North Carolina in order to become involved in a vibrant ceramics community. In the fall of 2011, I took part in a ceramics apprenticeship focusing on crystalline glazing in Corvallis, Oregon. I fell in love with the process, and I have since developed a body of work utilizing crystalline glazes.
I fire to cone 10 in an electric kiln. I enjoy creating vases, mugs, teapots, canister sets, and urns. I am happy to create custom orders for you; find my e-mail address on the “Contact” page!
