Making fancy mud pies decorated with mimosa blooms was a childhood passion. Next came sewing, then cooking, followed by gardening. All of the craft experiences came together as I was nearing retirement from a 36 year nursing career. An opportunity to take a handbuilt pottery class presented itself and, boom all of the craft came together. Each handbuilt piece requires different elements of past experiences. Making patterns, measuring slabs of clay, mixing glaze ingredients, and of course making clay flowers. I share my studio with my sister Jill Lindsey and together we have fun working and creating as Sister Art Pottery.
