Seattle Studio Potter at Rat City Studios
Thank you for visiting my website!  I am a studio potter born and raised in Seattle, Washington!  My functional porcelain tableware is hand formed.  Each piece is composed by me from wheel thrown and hand build components. I want my work to bring movement and color to your kitchen.  I want to infuse your life with purposeful beauty!

Rat City Studios is my pottery studio located in West Seattle/ White Center area of Seattle, WA. Here I make artwork and tend my garden, chickens, and bees. Through the studio I offer weekly clay classes, workshops, and hosts social events. Several emerging artists join me for a year long studio assistant position in exchange for studio space.  I also rent studio space occasionally.
Together we keep the studio thriving.
