In 1968 when a painting course was cancelled, I ended up taking a substitute – Raku. Clay, I discovered, had much more potential for creative expression. Through the 1970’s and 80’s I worked with stoneware and electric kilns, and sold my functional work at craft shops and fairs in the Ottawa Valley of eastern Ontario.

After a 15 year hiatus, I returned to ceramics in 2002 with a renewed vigor to explore more varied work. Today I work in cone 10 reduction, in porcelain and stoneware, focusing mostly on one-of-a-kind functional pieces. Working with gas has made me re-evaluate my work and I find techniques such as stamping, carving and appliqué the most satisfying.

In 2008 I signed up for the year-long journey workshop with U.S. potter Steven Hill. As a result of studying with Steven I find my work is becoming more focused and he has given me the courage to freely transfer my ideas and emotions into clay.

After decades of work I feel that maybe my pots are finally beginning to talk and sing to me - and truly satisfy me.
