An important aspect of my life with pottery lies in teaching as well as making.

I have been teaching ceramics at Maine College of Art in Portland since 1985, mostly part-time. I teach an elective that is about throwing: using the potter’s wheel as the primary tool to make pottery and forms. I also teach in ceramic majors classes which include all kinds of issues in ceramics: sculpture, mixed materials, installation, functional pottery, handbuilding, throwing, many kinds of clays and firing processes.

Teaching provides another kind of reward for me. As any teacher will tell you, when you teach, you learn a lot. It keeps you on your toes. I am always learning from students and from the other faculty.
