Welcome!  My website has three main sections-one for my pottery,  one for my jewelry work, and a third section for my theater work.  Please wander around and explore the pages.  Yes indeed, its all the same person!


Over the years I’ve found that my creativity and passions are most fully and naturally expressed in these art forms and bring me a deep and profound satisfaction.  The balance of performing and visual arts is very important to me.



Pottery & Jewelry:

This is my 'new' pit kiln at the Takaezu Studio where I'm the first Artist in Residence in a new program.  I've already fired it half a dozen times and slowly getting better results every time.



Good news is that we have now have a dedicated space to display the work of the resident artists.  Right now that's me and Don Fletcher.  So if you want to drop by, just contact me.  I'd be delighted to show you my work and this amazing studio.


Working on posting new photos and getting ready to launch an online store right here on my website.  So stay tuned!



OPEN HOUSE at Toshiko Takaezu Studio. Sunday, May 31, 2015. Noon-6pm.  More info soon.



The big news in this area is that I am taking a sabbatical from theater and teaching.  For the next year or two I will be focusing on my ceramic and metal work here at the Toshiko Takaezu Studio.  Of course, if the itch to do theater becomes too strong or someone offers me a dream project I'll let you know-loud and proud!

Opera!  It happened.  Back in theater land.  Nick Olcott asked me to collaborate on movement for an evening of short operas, Crime and Punishment at the Maryland Opera Studio.  So much fun!
