For 15 years I have taught both adults and children and have done many teaching artist residencies in schools in the Philadelphia area. One class I look forward to each week in particular is at the Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Chester, PA. I have included some images of student work and of students working in some of my classes.

Designing pottery that can be used and appreciated daily in the home is my passion but it has been especially rewarding and challenging to make Judaica ritual pieces to be used weekly for Shabbat and throughout the year for holidays. I enjoy crafting objects that reflect my love of Jewish culture and honor the earth and its beauty. Whether drinking a simple cup of coffee from my mug or saying prayers over candles with my candlesticks, I hope my pottery brings its owners a moment of beauty and appreciation for the ritual for many years.
