Being on The Great Pottery Throwdown was an experience of a life time. I had such an amazing and wonderful time. The greatest thing of all are the wonderful friendships I made and will have for a lifetime.

I have always loved teaching. Sharing my knowledge with others is simply what makes me tick. I often say “what is the point of all this stuff in my head if not to share it”.

It is so important to me that this craft that I consider my life continues and is loved by others. I find it amazing to watch my students engage with the materials and to find the peace within it, that I know to be there. Picking up a piece of clay and manipulating it into shapes takes people immediately to a place of contentment.
