My motto is Music from a Keyless Piano. My desk is the skeleton of a piano – no keys but it still makes music and functions well. It is a handmade treasure.
I jump daily to build bone density.
I feel that buying locally, handmade, quality work is a pleasure.
What got you started crafting?
The first time I saw someone throw on the wheel and watched clay move in opposition to gravity I loved it.
What is your source of inspiration?
I just love the process of making & solving the puzzle of construction.
What have you made recently?
I am almost finished with a set of dinnerware in white and brown stoneware and am working on a blue and red ant sculpture in tin.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
Pottery: at local craft shows, in my pottery room and at LaGra Salon and Day Spa in Wellsville, the Canacadea Country Store in Alfred Station
Tin Folk Sculpture in Chicago
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I know that buying handmade keeps money traveling through a local economy and serving many people with the same dollar. I also feel that there is something timeless and human in creating well made, useful and lovely things.
