I first started working with clay when I was in high school. In the years since then I have dabbled in sculpture, pottery and jewelry designs while being a teacher of students with special needs for 31 years for The Toronto District School Board. When I retired from teaching in 2014, the first thing I wanted to do was to get my hands into some clay. I joined Woodlawn Pottery in 2017.
My work includes:
- hand built sculptural pieces
- figures bonding to create the walls of a vessel
- colourful thrown bowls etc., using a variety of underglazes and finished with a clear glaze
- a collection of wearable art; jewelry made by combining clay pieces, pearls, and semiprecious stone beads
