I was asked to participate in an educational grant to help students understand the art and science of pottery. I wrote curriculum about the chemistry of glazes and the physics of a pottery wheel along with many other topics. As part of the adventure, the resident potter allowed me to try out throwing on the wheel. I was instantly hooked! Over the past 15 years, I have taken lessons from local studios and John C. Campbell Folk School. I enjoy incorporating the shapes, colors and textures found in nature. Our State magazine carries several pieces of my work in their online store.
