I’ve not had much formal education in ceramics. My professional training is in family therapy. I started doing pottery while I was a family therapist to balance the stress of working with dysfunctional families. I’ve read lots of books and magazines and websites about pottery over the years. Much of my education as a ceramic artist has come through trial and error. I’m always curious to try a new technique or a new approach. Even after 30 years of pottery making, I’m still curious. The colored clay work that I’m doing now seems to have unlimited possibilities and I will probably be exploring it for a long time to come.
