I began collecting American art pottery many years before I started working in clay. Because really great period vases can cost thousands of dollars at auction, I decided to try making similar pieces for myself. It didn't occur to me to sell my work until a person walked into my first ceramics class and asked if she could buy one of my early vases. Since that day, many people have told me how happy they are to be able to find affordable heirloom quality American art pottery. I'm excited to be carrying on a great pottery tradition. Each JW Art Pottery vase is thrown individually, by hand, on a potter's wheel. To create the decoration, I apply thin coils of clay to the pot's surface and model the clay with wooden tools. An important feature of Arts and Crafts pottery is the use of matte glazes. My vases are glazed with unique matte microcrystalline glazes. The minute crystals that form in the glaze during the firing give each piece a soft appearance.
