I was first inspired by ceramics as a young girl while making pinch pots with my mother (she was taking a pottery class and I was tagging along). From that point on, I have always wanted to work with clay. While ceramics was not my focus in school, I periodically enrolled in pottery classes throughout high school, college and into my adult years. The culmination of these experiences, for me, is the creation of our studio. Here, we have the opportunity for collaboration with partners as well the exploration of our own individual interests and goals. I am grateful for the continuing evolution of our artistic and interactive expression.
