Art Instructor Ceramics
With Cabrillo College since 2004
I love working with people. They are an endless source of inspiration, insight and surprises. Teaching brings me a great deal of joy.
I love creating sculptural work and functional pottery using hand building techniques and on the potter's wheel.
Clay holds a fascination for me due to its remarkable integrity of form and surface, the spontaneity with which it can be worked, as well as its durability and usefulness. I love working with a pallet of color, light and texture, as well as the interactions between the clay, glaze and fire. These are the tools for creating poetry in the visual language of Ceramics.
