We work hard to bring you functional pieces as well as sculptural ones. We collaborate on new designs and sketch out our ideas for sharing long before it hit the store shelves. Stop by the studio when you are in the area. Watch us work and join the fun. We may have The Doors, ZZ Top, the 50’s and 60’s or Mozart to work by. There is plenty of Pizzazz to go around!
But seriously, being an artist I see the world as a series of potential art experiments. Sometimes it translates to a painting, a collage, a pot or a poem. I enjoy not being boxed in as simply a potter. Although my passion is for clay, I could never turn away from my creative spirit in another medium. I enjoy working in paper collage using my own hand made paper, fabrics, fibers, pastels and oils.
I was schooled in ceramics at Notre Dame College in Manchester, New Hampshire where I was fortunate to study under Armand Szainer and Gerry Williams. Currently I teach Ceramics and other art courses at the Community College of Vermont in Rutland and work in my clay studio to produce pots for you. My pots can also be purchased wholesale and locally from gift shops as well as by appointment at my studio in Fair Haven, Vermont. The gallery gigs are always changing and my sculptures can be seen in France and Germany. I currently belong to Vermont Crafts Council, The Potters Council, The American Ceramics Society, International Ceramic Artists, Fair Haven Art Club, Poultney Artist Guild, Chaffee Art Center, The Barn Gallery, Vermont Farmers Market and the Lakes Region Farmers Market.
