In the fall of 1994, I quit work at The Philadelphia Inquirer to join my husband on a year’s sabbatical. In each city we lived, Boston, Miami and London, I took pottery courses. By the end of the year, I knew I was a potter. I love the feel of the clay passing through my fingers. I love cities. My work, mostly thrown on the wheel, focuses on the geometric simplicity of city buildings.
“Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped to its nakedness.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944), French aviator, writer.
