1. Tell us about your work
I make pottery for fun and function. I use stoneware for durability and I like the texture of the body so I draw on it with stain but leave it unglazed on the outside. I use bright glazes on the insides to add color and fun. I fire them high so they can be sturdy and functional.

Started in college, went to RISD and just couldn't stop making stuff.

3. Where do you draw your inspiration?
Nature, doodling, animals

7. What do you {heart} about Rhode Island?
That it has everything from a vibrant city to quiet beaches and woods. Great arts and music and food. It's small enough to drive anywhere in the state in an hour. 4 seasons with their own personalities.
