I make functional stoneware pottery that has been thrown on a potter’s wheel and carved with designs. It is fired with a blue glaze to cone temperature 6, which makes it safe for the oven, microwave, and dishwasher. I also teach ceramics at Lower Columbia College in Longview.
It has been 39 years since I took my first pottery class, and after all that time, I find I still get the most pleasure from creating pots that people like to use in their everyday life.
