Pottery and Birdbaths

My pottery and painting are intertwined. During the past few years, I have been making stoneware tableware, fermentation and food storage vessels, funereal and memorial urns, and big, tall patio pots. I thank my teacher of the past several years, James Pastore, for inspired guidance and superb technical knowledge.

Ceramic Fermentation Crocks

Ceramic Fermentation Crocks

In January 2016, I began making pots again at Goggleworks Center for the Arts. I hadn't worked at GW for several years and had not made function tableware in decades. I was inspired by an incredible young ceramist, James Pastore, the ceramics studio manager and teacher. I took a throwing class with him and he has become a great mentor. These are ceramic vegetable fermenters designed for making pickles, kimchi, and sauerkraut. They come with cast glass weights! 12" tall, fired to cone 6.
