Pottery Class description from the instructor:
In this class, I will share my love of hand-built pottery. I will teach you basic techniques and how to use the tools and equipment. Then, we will push the limits and expand on those skills with creativity. All skill levels are welcome. Come prepared to play in the mud!

My introduction to clay was at an intense two-week art program where we worked in a wooded setting and lived in cabins. I was hooked! After graduating from St. Mary’s College with a BA in Fine Art, I took a few classes here and there. Over the years I have dabbled in many different mediums- stone carving, stained glass, jewelry making, and photography. About ten years ago, I rekindled my interest in pottery on a regular basis. I have created a body of work in pottery that I exhibit and sell at area art shows. Along the way I have built a loyal following of collectors. My pottery has been included in the MAAC show in St. Joseph, Michigan several times, including a Purchase award and a Merit award in 2013. I currently have a piece on exhibit in “Around the Bend” at the South Bend Museum of Art. I have been teaching Pottery at The Elkhart Art League for a year.
