Artist Statement

Clay Artisan. “We are the clay, you are the potter, we are the work of your hand.” Isaiah 65:8


I have been working with clay for the past couple of years. I am in partnership with Cindy Clark and also work closely with Camille Claibourne. We do individual and joint pieces together. We share kiln, glazes, and lots of laughs. I work with the wheel but I really enjoy the clay sculpting aspect. The three of us are nurses who do pottery as a hobby! The best “therapy” ever!
