I have been working with metal clay for about 20 years now, having first dabbled in throwing pottery on a wheel. I started in metal clay first as a hobby to balance my working life as a trial and corporate attorney, and recently as a full-time artist after I retired from the practice of law.

I took the original PMC certification courses, and have since branched out into enameling, cutting the clay with a Curio machine, fusing glass cabochons, and bench jewelry metalsmithing. I love experimenting with materials and designs and especially pushing the boundaries of mixing glass and metal clay.
