Teaching Philosophy:

I believe in a hands-on approach to learning to make pots. I feel direct experience is the best teacher, so I encourage students to get dirty right away.   I do several demonstrations per class, and am very open to suggestions from students. I try to keep out of people's way, while being there to keep an eye on their progress and am ready to step up to assist, as soon as I see a problem or am asked for help. The main objective in my classes is to have fun,  get creative, and to hopefully bring home some beautiful  hand-made pots.
