You will find finely crafted, porcelain pottery that is functional and timeless. Each piece is individually thrown and painted so that no two pieces are exactly alike. Using nature as my inspiration, my objective is to create watercolor, expressionistic like paintings that evoke a feeling of joy and beauty. All of my glazes are lead free and the ware is safe for the microwave, oven and dishwasher.  Function is an important consideration, as is beauty.  I hope you will use the pots daily.

Over the years my work has undergone changes but I have always admired simple vessel forms and have been drawn to vibrant color contrast. There are two different series of wheel thrown pots that I now create. My production line, the Wildflower, Bird, and Fern Green collections are a natural extension of my passion for gardening.   I am in constant awe of the diversity of colors, patterns, shapes and textures found in nature. The other pattern in my production line is of striking, cobalt blue Fleur de lis, which reflects the French influence on Louisiana's culture.  The one of kind pieces consist mainly of unique plates and vessels; some are painted using the production patterns and others are black and white silhouettes of loosely drawn dancers that communicate celebration. 

In May of 1980, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Louisiana State University. My concentration was in ceramics and like most potters, once I touched clay I was hooked.  Since then, I have been involved in making and teaching art.

I hope you will enjoy using these pieces as much as I enjoy making them.
