I grew up in Rutherford College, a small town in the foothills of North Carolina. I now reside in Durham, NC after attending school at UNC Chapel Hill, where I was introduced to the history of area potteries. My dinnerware is made on a potter's wheel and then fired in a wood kiln. I look to potters from generations ago as their pots were a true expression of locality and utility. I use all NC clays and I'm dedicated to using glazes and techniques to create work that represents our community, both past and present.
