I'm a ceramic artist living in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. I grew up in Toledo, Ohio and graduated in 2008 from Bowling Green State University in Ohio where I got a BFA in glass and ceramics. After graduating I did some wandering around, worked at the Omega Institute (where met my husband), lived in Costa Rica for a while, became a yoga teacher and then settled in Colorado where I started making ceramics again. I was in Denver for seven years growing my business and then moved to Idaho and brought the business with me. I live here now with my husband, two little girls and pup, making pottery in my basement.
There is something wonderful about holding a handmade object. It's hard to put into words but we all know that feeling. I think it's a pretty good feeling. My hope is that these pieces will be fun and functional and bring a little happiness into your everyday activities like serving a meal, growing a plant, or having your morning coffee. I enjoy the whole process of making things out of clay, from throwing to trimming to decorating. I hope that the amount of joy that I get from making these pieces from beginning to end comes through while you are holding and using them in your everyday life.
It makes me so happy to know that these pieces I've put my time and passion into make their way to good homes where they will be loved.
