Working with clay was always an interest of mine, which I happily got to pursue in earnest after retiring. In 2011 I set up a home studio in Durham, North Carolina and another on Sandy Point in Shelburne, Nova Scotia, where we spend summers, and which is the inspiration for the name Sandy Point Pottery. 

My goal is to make functional pots that are pleasing to the eye, feel good to the touch, and are easy to use. All pots are high fired stoneware and porcelain, and include teapots, mugs, plates, bowls, salt pigs, butter crocks and beer steins, sometimes accented with tape and wax relief.

My pots can be seen by arrangement at my home studios in Durham and Shelburne; at the weekly Farmer and Artisan Market in Shelburne; at the Ross-Thomson House Museum in Shelburne; at the 2019 Durham County Pottery Tour (November 9 and 10, 2019); and at the Woodcroft Clubhouse Pottery Sale (Sunday, December 15 from noon - 5pm). Visit the gallery for samples of my work.

Please contact me to visit my studios or to discuss custom orders.
