Intricate hand carved art and functional ceramics inspired by the mountains
I've been known to craft and create and get distracted by pretty things for as long as I can remember. My Grandma doodled masterpieces on packages she would send us and one of my earliest obsessions was a quilt she made for my mother. As a child, I would trace her work with my fingers for hours, enamored by the design. I can only dream of creating pieces that are so valued and explored.
I developed an interest in creating my own art from an early age and graduated high school with the Art Award. When I started college, I began as an art major but was encouraged by my mom to pursue something more practical that would allow me to create “just for fun” (and pay for art supplies). I studied nursing and quilted in my free time. I didn’t discover pottery until 2012, when I began taking ceramics classes at Kentucky Mudworks in Lexington, Kentucky. I never would have guessed where those adventures would lead me, but it has been a dream come true.
My two greatest artistic outlets continue to be quilting and pottery, thus my name: fiber and glaze. These crafts have dominated most of my creative hours: discovering new glaze combos, new patterns, and new techniques. When I am not trail running or participating in some other outdoor pursuit, I am making art or dreaming about it.
I find massive joy in sharing the things I make with others. Each piece has been touched, turned, and considered with love....and I mean repeatedly. I share my work with hopes to inspire you, if not to find out what you are capable of, then to be comforted by beauty in the world around you.
