I have always needed ceramics in my life as it feeds my spirit so much. This has created some really interesting situations in order to make this happen!
I have hauled a wheel 1 mile up a mountain and have moved a 2,500 lb kiln three times. But my passion for ceramics has always carried me through it all. From running a ceramics lamp company “Stickshade Lamps” to participating in numerous studio tours, I am very happy to have my Sunset Hill Ceramics business at my home in Ballard, Washington. I am delighted to be able to bring pleasure to your home and table through my work. Enjoy and please enjoy your loved ones.
I have spent the last 30 years teaching the violin and fiddle. At a young age I traveled to Japan spending time with Dr Suzuki working on my violin teaching program. While In Japan I was very fortunate to have also landed an internship with a ceramicist who had been declared a national treasure by the name of Eitaro Takano. Both of these experiences deeply influenced me.
I have always found an internal peace when sitting and creating pottery. From feeling the earthiness of clay spinning in my hands to throwing a 5 pound slab, the physical as well as the creative aspect have kept me physically and mentally alive.
