11 years ago I took a class at a ceramics school in Boston where I caught the pottery bug. I'm most interested in the space where art and science intersect; ceramics is the perfect example of such a junction. Though my education is in Biology and Chemistry, my heart is that of a maker. The properties of silica, glaze formation and behavior, and phase changes from raw clay to vitrified clay during the firing process - the chemical. Throwing on the wheel requires an understanding of centrifigal force - the physical. Measuring raw materials, recording observations, and reproducing desired effects are done using the scientific method. Finally, the commitment to continuous learning, and engagement with the broader Ceramics community are elements of the practice that I value the most.

Now I live in Southern California and my love for the clay arts continues. I’ve studied ceramics at universities, community colleges, and community art studios. Currently, I work from my private studio.

 I use sgraffito and other carving techniques, underglazes and stains. I work with porcelain, stoneware, and terracotta mid-fire clay.

I welcome commissions. 

All pottery for sale is produced in small batches. Each piece is unique.

I invite you to follow me on Instagram and visit my Etsy shop, which is coming soon.
