“I have always liked the process of making pottery, turning
mud into a functional piece of art is a magical thing. I love when people want
to use my pottery”.
My work is all handmade in my studio behind the gallery in
Sisters, Oregon. I work with the finest clays available and fire my work to
cone 10 (2400 degrees) in a reduction atmosphere, this makes my pottery very
durable and beautiful. The high firing hardens the clay, and the reduction
reacts with the chemicals in the clay and the glaze to produce beautiful colors
and effects. My favorite part is throwing the clay on a potter’s wheel.
There are many uses for using handmade pottery from accents
in your kitchen to lighting you living room. One of my favorites is having your
favorite mug that fits your hand so well that it feels like it was made for
I opened my gallery in 2002, this year is our 20th
anniversary, it has been a lot of fun getting to know the people who buy and
enjoy my work. I have opened this online store to give my customers another way
to get my work.
We are a little hard to find, but if you enjoy fine handmade
pottery, it is a must see and well worth the effort! Stop by and visit the next
time you are in Central Oregon!
