I grew up going to the Smokey Mountains on family vacations and was fascinated with the craftsmen & women that could create such wonderful things with their hands.
I started throwing pottery when I was a student in college. I worked both in the school’s studio and spent a summer working under a great mentor of mine in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains. After college I joined the big world and found myself a nice job and dried my hands for a while from the clay. Recently, I picked up where I left off and I have found a new love for the craft and practice it part time. One day I hope to make pottery a larger piece of my life, but until then I am fortunate to have the opportunity to explore and grow my talent.
