To have a space to create and dream in is a gift. Before moving into the little studio next to my house I was on the front porch with my pottery wheel. I loved the feeling of the warm sun on my face and the cool air coming down from the mountain, but to have a solid roof and walls allows me to create anytime rain or shine. The Studio, an old wooden farm shed, makes a perfect shell for me to grow. Light filled, rustic, open and essential for what I need. I wake up, make a cup of coffee, walk down the hill to my studio and enjoy the quiet while making a bowl or pitcher. Outside the window, a stand of bamboo sways in the wind. Overalls covered in dried clay, I begin my next project.
