Summer Residency

I am thrilled to have been awarded a residency at STARworks for this summer 2018. Not only will I be back in my old stomping grounds…I lived in the Seagrove, NC area for 18 years…but I will have the time and space to work on new ceramic endeavors, utilizing the native NC wild clays that are produced there.
