About the Artist

I was first introduced to clay work in a weekend workshop held in Prince Rupert in 1975. Some buddies and I co-built a big cookie jar from clay coils. I quite enjoyed the feel of clay and later took lessons from Eva Bebington at her pottery studio, The Centering Place in Terrace.
I set up my own pottery studio in the basement of my home and have two Skutt kilns and two Shimpo wheels. I enjoy both throwing on the wheel and hand building.
I give lessons to adults, one on one. It’s satisfying sharing my love and knowledge of pottery with others.
I sign my pottery with a heart with 2 wave symbols coming off the right side. This is because I was born on Valentine’s Day which is in Aquarius, the wave symbol being the zodiac symbol for Aquarius.
