I started taking pottery classes in the early 1970s. My style evolved over time with changing trends and methods and I was lucky enough to meet and work under a Korean master potter named Ki-woon, here in Sarasota.
I’ve worked in many mediums but often stayed heavily focused on sculptural ceramics, until one day in 2009. A good friend showed me how to make a coil with colorful wire. I loved it. I was immediately attracted to all the things I might be able to create with simple, beautiful and minimal wire. Since then, I’ve experimented with wire, gems, polymers, and weaving techniques to develop my own unique contemporary style.
I teach classes locally at ACE, teaching classes in wire jewelry and polymers. Check out the classes I teach here.
