Crawfish Clay

My work can be purchased by appointment only. I hope to have my new studio fully functional and ready for pottery lessons and sales soon!!!

Face cup class today was a BLAST! I’ll be making an announcement soon for class openings that will be listed on

This cutie is helping me install the new tables on the 5 Shimpo potters wheels I bought 2 years ago. I get excited, thinking of future students sitting at them, ready to become artists.

Friday night’s class was great fun! I always love creating a relationship between students and clay with pinch pots and hand made mugs. To learn more about classes, follow this page and send me an email through my website...

It’s been a LONG time since I completed a kiln load of my own work. Being a full time public school art teacher is rewarding, but very time consuming. I’ll be cleaning up the studio this week in preparation to start giving lessons. I’ll be posting the details within the next few weeks.

Things have been really busy around here. I am trying to finish up renovating my commercial building, which is rented to a gal who will be opening “Attic to Awesome.” Maybe one day I will move my teaching studio to this space, but we shall see. As soon as I’m done with her renovations, I can concentrate on getting my personal studio ready for the lessons everyone has been asking me about 🙂 Here is the commercial space so far. I must confess that I am a tad jealous of my own building! LOL

Update: I’ve been working hard to get the studio ready to start giving lessons; hopefully, by this summer! Right now, we are trying to figure out why we are not getting gas to the burners on the big kiln. NEXT UP.... finish installing water to the studio for washing up and a bathroom!
