I am a devoted local potter and experienced teacher of many years. My specialty is throwing a variety of vessels on the wheel, from simple bowls, cups, vases, pie dishes, plates and planters to more complicated forms with lids, handles, or combined parts: sugar bowls, chip & dips, casseroles, etc. I enjoy working with beginning and intermediate students, as well as more experienced potters who want tips on finessing forms during throwing or trimming, and combining glazes.

Tess has loved and worked in clay most of her life and finds that teaching gives voice to her passion. By breaking down the process, explaining away the mystery and demonstrating technique in ways easy to understand, her students get a deep down understanding that allows them to grow their capacities beyond their expectations.
Kelly loves teaching beginners! Reach out and learn how to use the wheel or how to handbuild to make things that will center you and impress others. Bring your own specific expertise into the lesson and we can collaborate to make objects that are truly your own.
I enjoy working with beginners, children and folks with special needs, as well as the more curious or advanced students. In my own work as a Ceramic Artist I specialize in making uniform or stacking sets of all kinds (think dinnerware), and have a flair for all things glaze and surface design. Happy to set up a time to get creative with you!
