In the fall of 2016, I began exploring clay and creating objects with the sole purpose of experimentation and pleasure. I fell in love with clay and making work out of any kind- porcelain, terra cotta, stoneware, etc.- in college, and admittedly something that I stopped working with when I became a teacher. I felt encouraged to pick it up again and try something new with it, and I have been recently creating functional pieces that include jewelry and home decor items. I sell my work on Etsy, collaborate with other jewelry makers, and show my work in pop-up craft fairs. I also create custom work for jewelers, companies, and individuals seeking custom art.
