What sparks your creativity? What drives you to work with clay?

"I get inspired by a lot of things – other potters work, pictures that I see on the internet, even things I’ve seen on TV.  I’ve been known to pause the TV and take a pic of the screen.   I have a whole digital photo album of nothing but the things that have caught my eye that I would like to attempt some day in clay.  I really like masks, organic forms, and geometric designs that I draw by hand and then paint the glaze on."

      How have you have taken your experience as a well-established maker in the field and passed that knowledge along to your other artists?

      "Not really, but I have shared my experiences on social media when people ask pottery questions.  I don’t consider myself an expert by any means.  There is just so much that I don’t know!"

      What’s the best advice you’ve been given by a fellow maker, mentor, or teacher?

        The best advice I ever received, but it is advice that I find to be difficult for me to follow, is “if it’s perfect then no one will know that it was hand-made”. I can’t begin to tell you how many pieces that I’ve actually ruined trying to make it “perfect”.   I’m never fully satisfied with any of my pieces."



        "Plague Mask"




        "Bowl with Single Faux Wood Handle"

        Bio:

        I am a fifth-generation Houston native, and I live in a 1930’s bungalow in East Montrose with my six rescue chihuahuas (please don’t judge me!).  My mother has lived with me since late 2019. I received a five-week beginners pottery class at Foelber’s Studio as a Christmas gift in 2014. I started the classes in January of 2015, and I was hooked! I love exploring different styles and techniques, but I tend to prefer hand building, bright colors and detailed work.
