Handmade Pottery from Leesburg, Virginia

Pottery from Leesburg, Virginia

My Passion is working with clay a - a soft malleable substance- throwing, forming, urging it into an object of both beauty and function. An object, which can be admired, touched, held, and used in daily life. This process and transformation of the soft clay into a hard and beautiful object meant to be seen, used, passed along, maybe even eventually broken and given back to the earth seems to mirror personal growth and transformation.

I use mid range clay and glazes in my work and enjoy glaze colors and themes which can be found in nature. I try to incorporate a combination of family, prayer, meditation , nature and the creation of pottery into every single day of my life as part of my own personal growth and transformation. It gives me great insight and joy to create a one of a kind piece of pottery artwork. I hope others enjoy viewing and utilizing my pots as much as I enjoy making them.

  • After “retiring” from the corporate world at age 30, I have been raising kids, dogs,making pots and loving life!
  • I am an avid chef and enjoy creating functional bakeware, serving pieces and other items that enhance the culinary experience.
  • I have been making pieces to become part of your daily life as well as pieces that become part of your traditions and celebrations. I look forward to sharing my latest creations with you.

Please contact me for an appointment to purchase unique handmade functional pottery from my studio collection or contact me via my Etsy Shop.
