Her functional ceramic pottery is available directly from her home gallery. She will ship her work anywhere in the world.

If you don’t see the tile that you are looking for, please contact me. I will make tiles to order.

We have a new pottery shop/gallery and sculpture trail on our property in Chilmark, and I have temporarily closed my Etsy shop. Work comes out of the kiln, lands in the shop, and visitors stop by and purchase it. Eventually, I’ll be redesigning the online store so that people can see the full range of designs that I offer and have pieces made to order. In the meantime, please check out the Instagram feed to see what I am working on, and have in stock. If you see anything that interests you, I can send you photographs. I ship!

Here is a video of what is on my pottery shelves. I am working on several tile commissions so have new designs coming into the shop every few weeks.

My mom recently unearthed this teapot that I made in my 20s shaped like a woman in her bath. The head is the lid. I’d like to create figurative, functional work again. Maybe in the slow, quiet months of winter… ...

I glazed three more mugs yesterday to test the glazes and techniques. Here is what came out of the test kiln this morning. This process is a lot of fun! I’m ready to start glazing the rest and loading the large kiln. ...

Just pulled these quickly decorated mugs out of the small test kiln. I’m experimenting with how to put designs on a smooth earthenware mug without all the glazes running together. These two have given me lots of great information! I’m excited to get glazing. ...

Yesterday, my beloved partner, Bill and I had a potluck, pizza party wedding. With the help of friends and family, we gathered tables and benches, strung lights, and transformed Island Folk Pottery (our home, pottery shop and sculpture trail) into a sparkling stage for joyful celebration. I made the pizza dough and Bill manned the outdoor oven. Delicious food was contributed by all. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. I am so grateful for the teamwork that helped to make our wedding truly special. ❤️ ...
