I first touched clay when I was in high school in Lancaster, PA. The potter's wheel allowed me to work with my hands in an incredibly direct way, and I liked the idea that my handmade pot could become a part of someone else's life. For two years, my high school art teacher, Dick Ressel, challenged me with questions and projects. Because of his influence, I ended up pursuing BFA in ceramics at Penn State University under Chuck Aydlett, David Dontigny and Chris Staley. I received my MFA from San Diego State University where I studied under Richard Burkett and Joanne Hayakawa. read more...
