Meghan & David
I am a full-time potter working in an urban studio in Rochester, NY. I produce single-fired, wood ash glazed functional stoneware, selling out of my showroom, at art fairs and at galleries all around the country.
I learned my craft in a community studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, rather than in an academic institution, as is common today. Surrounded by extremely talented and generous potters, I learned much of what I needed to know to earn my living. Michael Frasca, Brenda Brown Tarbell, Michael Astalos, Bob Hasselle and Pam Korte are just a few of the folks to whom I owe a large debt of gratitude. It was a good way to learn, without academic term deadlines and able to absorb and progress at my own speed.
After a few more years working and learning in other potteries, I set up shop in Cincinnati and worked with Michael Frasca, and later Allan Nairn at Spring Street Pottery. We produced a line of gallery pots and architectural work until 1987, when I moved to the Finger Lakes region of western New York State. I worked in beautiful rural solitude for 16 years before moving to Rochester.
Now I share a large studio in the Hungerford Building in Rochester with three other potters, each of us producing our own line of work. Please feel free to stop by anytime, or contact me, if you have questions or requests.
