I first fell in love with clay at the age of 10. 40 years later, I became an adult student of first, Chad Hartwig, and then, Zach Tate.

I had been making functional ware in our backyard shed until the fall of 2018, when I convinced a friend to build a small wheel so that I could work year round. And, as they say, the rest is history.

The backyard shed is now a year round studio, where I make small porcelain wares featuring dynamic glazes and minute detail work that quiets the noise and makes time fall away as you focus on the tiny magnificence, and realize… it really is about the small things in life.

Come see me, and the tiny wheel in action, at Dick Lehman’s during this year’s Michiana Pottery Tour.
