I am fortunate to be working with clay, which is so wonderfully tactile and responsive. As a potter, I want my pots to inhabit daily life – nourishment, celebration, comfort, and decoration. Lofty goals for a humble pot!
In our hurried world, using hand-made objects can give us a moment to pause, observe and connect with the maker. Creating work that successfully balances form, color, line and pattern is a goal and a thrill I never tire of as I am driven by my passion to create.

March 14, 2020: Boulder Arts and Crafts has made the difficult decision to close the gallery until further notice in order to practice social distancing. All of our staff are healthy, and we hope to keep them well. In closing, we hope to help many others stay safe.
Although we are not open for regular business, we will be checking in each day. Please email or call if we can help you with anything. Our website is open as well. As long as the post office and UPS remain in service, we can ship you something beautiful.
