All ages and skill levels are welcome


The Clay Bakery Studio offers individual and group instruction in throwing on the potter’s wheel, hand building, and glazing techniques; a comprehensive pottery experience. The private lessons and classes are held at my full-equipped ceramic studio in Greensboro, North Carolina. Students explore their creativity and come away with one-of-a-kind works of art.

I have been a ceramic artist for over thirty years and have been teaching in my studio for the past 23 years. I have had the privilege of studying with many Masters in the field in university as well as at various workshops around the world.

I am able to structure pottery classes for students who are just beginning with clay, as well as those who are seeking advanced instruction. All ages and skill levels are welcome.
