As a young kid I always enjoyed making things. No matter what –
I was intrigued with the materials, shapes, color, tools, or any various aspect that went into a certain project. In college I knew that metals and jewelry were to be my concentration, but in my senior year I took the required Ceramics class and from there I was hooked.
My teaching career was spent building a college-level pottery program at Lakeland High School, and near the end of my career, I was smitten by the “tile “ bug after taking a week-long tile workshop at Miami of Ohio.
This led to the making of a tile mural at L.H.S. which hangs in the library. Now that I am retired from teaching I continue with clay for my amusement and fun. The learning never ends.
