With a mom who collected pottery from every state that we visited, my love for clay started at a young age. I remember visiting a potter's studio and being mesmerized the first time watching someone throw a pot. My small town Wyoming high school didn't have specific ceramic classes, but I was able to do an independent study, which was my first brief introduction to working with clay. Entering college, I was torn between a love for science and art. After a summer spent interning at Eckles Pottery Shop in Bayfield, Wisconsin, I realized with ceramics, I could have both. I spent three summers at Eckels during college, and earned my Bachelors of Fine Arts from Bradley University. A career in non-profit arts administration and two young kids later, I am focusing on clay as a full-time career now.
