Nautilus Platter available in floating blue and coral glazes. Plates also available.

I moved to Loudoun County, VA in the mid 1990s and fell in love with what was a very rural county at the time. I visited many local potters, adding their unique mugs to my growing collection. I took lessons from potters Shawn Grove, Bryan Mattraw, and Kristen Swanson. My love of creating pottery was born. I find inspiration from the environment where I am – at the beach, in the mountains, or from memories. I created beach mugs from my visits to Hatteras Island, the New Jersey shore, Southern California beaches, and Puerto Rico. I have collected shells from these beaches that go on top of the ocean candles. The first place I lived in Loudoun County was Downtown Leesburg, which was the inspiration for my “Downtown Leesburg” mugs, ornaments, and wall hangings. I also love rural Loudoun County, and I was inspired to create the “Loudoun County” mugs from caring for chickens and other farm animals.
