Kathleen began her training as a painter. But with her introduction to clay, she discovered the excitement of forming her canvas, and the satisfaction of adding utility as an integral dimension of her art.
By selecting reduction firing, Kathleen enjoys the endless variations of natural elements reacting with each other in the firing chamber, while her glaze application technique retains the freedom of watercolor. The classic thrown forms and crisp slab constructed pieces in high-fired stoneware speak to a sense of order and durability.

From the mantel to the microwave, from the dining table to the dishwasher,
