All of my jewelry, lapidary material and pottery is made by myself in my home studio. For my jewelry I slab all the stones myself and add antique finishes and patinas to the metals used. I make all my clays and glazes from scratch for my pottery. Most of it is wheel thrown. My education in ceramics starts with 4 semesters of ceramic classes at Nicholls State University. Also many workshops with different artists. I love to carve on the pots and add different glazing techniques which enhance the surfaces.
