Artist Bio or Résumé
My mom had a ceramic studio in our basement for 20 years, so you could say I grew up in the dusty world of ceramics. My mom’s studio, ELMS pottery, produced low-fire ceramics. As a kid, my sisters and I slip cast molds, produced green ware and decorated bisque ware. When my mom died I inherited one of her kilns and set out on my own. With the help of The Clay School in Lynn, I began to explore the risky world of high-fire pottery and the joy of wheel throwing and hand building. At the Clay School, I enjoy the comradery of the other students and teachers. When not working in ceramics, I am employed at North Shore Community College.
