My studio is a converted portion of an eight horse stable barn. For thirty years the aisle of the barn stored our tractor, garden gear, kayaks, and canoes. Three years ago this area transformed into “Pastels and Porcelain Gallery”. The working studio space houses two pottery wheels, an electric kiln, sink, tools, and of course my dreams and memories. I enjoy exploring, practicing methods and processes learned from workshops and classes. There is great pleasure in contemplating ideas in clay and exploring designs and creative techniques. Honestly though, one of the most treasured moments I believe is when I take a glance over at my Black Lab, Bear, chilling on his bed at my feet while I’m working. It doesn’t get any better than this!
