Artist Statement

Our wood-fired functional pottery is wheel thrown and altered by me (and my husband, Scott). Our studio is home to the Butterfly Bend Kiln, a three chamber anagama (“cave”) noborigama (“step-climbing”) Japanese style multi-chambered wood fire kiln. We fire it for 8 days with a crew of 12 potters, once, sometimes twice a year.

I’m grateful for the privilege to do something I love to do. And I'm delighted that pottery is the reason our paths crossed.
