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:
Big news!!! I've moved! I'm now the first Artist in Residence at a new program at the Toshiko Takaezu Studio in Flemington, New Jersey. Still trying to unpack boxes and organize my studio spaces, but it's glorious to have space both in the beautiful pottery studio and my very own room for jewelry and metal working.
New work is happening and photos will be posted soon!
My next show is coming up soon. I'll be at the American Craft Exposition in Evanston, IL again this year. The dates are August 22-24 at the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion on the campus of Northwestern University. Lincoln Street at the Lakefront, 2311 North Campus Drive. Show times are:
Friday, August 22 10am-8pm
Saturday, August 23 10am-6pm
Sunday, August 24 11am-5pm
I'll be in Booth #48. Come by and see my new work!
In September I'll be at the Rhinebeck Arts Festival in Rhinebeck, NY. Dates are September 26-28. Mark it on your calendar!
October takes me back home for a visit and the Washington Craft Show in Washington, DC. October 31-November 2.
I'll also be doing the Holiday CraftMorristown, NJ show December 13-15.
Dates and times of other shows will be posted 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!
