I had always wanted to try pottery and in late 2017, my mother gave me some classes as a birthday gift. I was immediately hooked, but quickly learned that making functional plates and bowls just didn’t interest me. By day I am in Human Resources, so perhaps by contrast I was drawn to make things that made you laugh or smile when you saw them. I like my pieces to be whimsical and fun yet still serve a purpose, whether it be a bowl, vase or a planter.

My ideas come from all different places.  I travel a lot so I take inspiration from places I have been to when making my planter heads. People email me suggestions for what I should make next and my friends and family always have great ideas. I like to keep challenging myself so I always have something new in the works.  Currently it is stacked animal vases or utensil holders and cake plates, but that might change if a new idea sparks my interest. The key for me is to see how I can take that functional item, like a cake plate, and somehow still create it in my own style so when you first look at it, you smile.
