I believe the beginning of my desires to work in clay was making mud pies as a child.
Fast-forward years later taking a few classes through rec centers, I knew as soon as I touch the clay it was something I wanted to pursue. Throughout the years I have had many influences that define my body of work. I remember one potter just mesmerized me in his ease to throw. That gave me the drive to become more proficient in throwing.
All the instructors at ACC helped me define what I wanted to produce and fine tune.
Love clay there is no end to what you can do with it.
