I enjoy hand-mixing all of my own clay and glazes in my Lake Superior studio, where the ever-changing view out my window never ceases to inspire me. Even after more than 20 years of working with clay, the nuances of each pot amaze me. Holding a new pot in the sunlight to catch its details and depths of glaze is supremely satisfying and calls me back to the wheel again and again. Selling direct to customers allows me the joy of watching someone find the “one” and seeing that sparkle in their eyes as they purchase their newfound treasure.
