About me

I teach a variety of courses in ceramics, including a new course entitled Sustainable Ceramics, which helps students understand the carbon footprint of ceramics, the sustainable use of materials, researching sustainable firing practices and the healthy use of one’s body throughout one’s career.

I enjoy traveling and working in my home studio. I often go antiquing or thrift shopping to search for clay objects others discarded. When there is time, gardening and experimenting in the kitchen with multicultural recipes gives me an excuse to entertain friends (or clay students).

I choose to work at Earlham because it is a small liberal arts college. The art department’s curriculum accommodates majors and non-majors.  Students that are majoring in other disciplines are often extremely talented and bring inter-disciplinary ideas to the studio … I love this!

Scholarly interest

My medium of choice is clay because it lends itself to creating utilitarian vessels as well as sculptural objects. My focus has been on wood firing, but I am currently exploring low-fire alternatives.
