Meet the Maker
I started taking pottery lessons to help deal with my grief after my father died. I did not expect to fall in love with the process. (I almost quit after the second class but no one needs to know that)
Pottery has taught me that it is okay to be imperfect, to trust in the process and most importantly, to slow down and be present.
(Because when you are not present at the pottery wheel, the whole vessel collapses!)
I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and colors. This is why I seldom create the same design twice.
I am an avid reader as I am constantly seeking knowledge and the truth.
In order to be a good human, I spend a lot of time in nature. I have a deep connection with nature, hence I have a strong desire to save the world.
I believe that when as a collective, we are healthy on all levels – mental, physical and spiritual, we will be kinder to ourselves, the people around us and mother earth.
My work in ceramics is one way I dream of contributing to making the world – your world, a bit better.
My hope is that when you are using your piece, you know you are not alone, that imperfection is good and that you feel a connection to nature.
I am grateful to live and work on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
Commonly known as Vancouver, British Columbia.
