Artist Bio:
BA Grinnell College, MFA Rhode Island School of Design, Apprenticed with Clary Illian and Chiyoichi Shimizu. Studio potter in Brooklyn since 1989.

Artist Statement:
I've been making FUNctional pottery in Gowanus since 1989. My urban folk pottery is intended for everyday use. It is porcelain, hand-thrown on the wheel, carved, and glazed with wax-resist. I believe in the power of craft and handmade functional objects in particular to change lives. I hope my Claireware storefront adds character and eclecticism to our ever-changing neighborhood.
