Where is your studio?  I live in Dover Plains, NY. It’s a rural town on the eastern edge of the Hudson Valley.  My studio is in my house.

What is your favorite Museum?  The Smithsonians Freer and Sackler Galleries.

What is your first memory of making something ceramic?   In third grade I made a self-portrait.  A girl in my class stole it and painted green hair on it.

Tell us one thing nobody knows about you.  I wanted to be a pro skateboarder and never planned to go to college, glad I did, thanks Mom!

Which mug do you drink from the most at home?  All of these are on regular rotation: Jen Allen, Alleghany Meadows, Chris Pickett, Andy Shaw, Steve Godfrey and Shanna Fliegel.


Objective Clay was founded by fourteen artists with a shared vision to create an artist established and maintained online space.  This space functions as a gallery to view our latest work as well as a window into our current thoughts in process. By sharing our ideas and opening our studios, we invite artists, non-artists, educators, and students to actively engage in our artistic practices. In this virtual studio, the people who love pots can view/purchase new work and form direct relationships with the artists who make them.
