Once, I volunteered on an excavation of a 19th century red earthenware pottery- I was hooked. I wanted to make pots. After clay courses at Dundas Valley School of Art, Mohawk College and the obligatory Ceramics at Sheridan College, I opened a studio in 1995. I throw pots on a wheel made with porcelain clay, fired in a reduction kiln. I have always worked with porcelain; I am enchanted with its translucency, the quality of glazes and the feel of the clay when throwing.
