After retiring from my job as a computer programmer working for a large company based in Southern California, I decided to explore different hobbies and settled on pottery after taking a class at Rogue Community College. I discovered a joy in creating something from a pile of clay. I try my hand at different types of clay work including functional ware, sculpture and garden items. My studio is Riverpoint Studio in Merlin and I currently sell my pieces at various shows in the area including Clayfolk Show and Sale, Hugo Ladies Quilt Show and Southern Oregon Artist Show and Sale. My ceramic pieces are now available for purchase at G Street Marketplace, 137 SW G St, Grants Pass, Oregon, Booth 140.
