New Clay

The latest development in my line of pottery is a new clay. I’ve switched to a white stoneware that brightens and smoothes the glaze surface. My new work is on display and available for purchase at Mud Dauber Pottery in Earlysville, Va; Vivian’s Art to Wear Art for Living in Charlottesville, Va; and City Clay on Main Street in Charlottesville.

Welcome to The Pottery Shelf

Dear Friends,
I’m so pleased to have a website and also a way to communicate with you through this blog. I will be posting current images of my pottery so that you can keep up with my new work. The kiln is presently cooling and will be unloaded tomorrow. It is always exciting to open a new kiln of fresh and warm pots! I was looking over some older images of my work and noticing subtle and not-so-subtle changes. I don’t feel that growth day-to-day, but it is certainly noticeable to me over time.

I hope that you will enjoy seeing my work as it goes through the natural progressions that the creative path takes me.
