My work shows my interest in textures and patterns in nature. I use a variety of techniques including stamping, carving, monoprinting, and objects themselves to capture the feeling of the landscape in clay. I use low fire clays—I especially love terracotta for its earthiness—and slips, stains and glazes.
I work out of Harvard University’s community studio, where I am a Resident Artist. My work has been exhibited at venues including Lacoste Gallery (Concord, MA), Vessels Gallery (Boston), the Fuller Craft Museum (Brockton, MA), and the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) conference.
Before practicing ceramics full-time, I wrote and edited publications for several non-profits. For 10 years I was the News Director/Announcer for a local NPR station. I was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 1985.
