I never dreamed I’d become a professional potter when I threw my first pot at age 26. While studying other things in college and graduate school, I continued to nurture my new hobby. By 1995 I was making a living as a potter and have been steadily expanding Dock 6 ever since.

Seeing someone use something I made is the best feeling in the world. Crafting beautiful objects that people use every day is what inspires me to keep creating. I think of every cup, plate, and coaster as a small piece of functional art; making this art accessible to everyday people makes my soul happy.
