ONLINE SHOP UPDATE:
I will be selling my work in person only until November 15. Check back in November to view my all new online shop and place your orders in time for Christmas.
FORTUNA STUDIO UPDATE:
In Spring 2022 my studio, Fortuna Pottery, will be relocating to Northern Wisconsin to the
Fortuna Family Century Farm. The dairy barn is being repurposed into the Stone Barn Arts. The Art Gallery and Ceramics Studio will be located in the lower cow barn, the Glaze Lab will be located in the milk house and the Kiln Room will be located in the heifer barn.
The Art Retreat will be located in the upper hay loft and will begin hosting visiting artists starting Summer 2023. There will be three private studios with access to common work areas. Artists will enjoy roaming the 80 acres of prairie, woods and wetlands and accommodations will be available in the renovated farm house.

I look forward to sharing this inspiring place but I leave Galena with sadness, especially for the friends Bill and I made here in our 20 years of making pots, enjoying music and touring in motorcycles and antique cars.

Add to this dialogue the sheer joy of working with clay as materially responsive as porcelain and surfaces only possible through glass fusion and a dynamic is created which has become a life-long fascination.
