"I have always had a fascination with POTTERY, so after taking an early retirement I decided to try my hand at creating my own pieces.

Needless to say, after just one class with Pine Tree Potters', I was hooked on the whole process - the ability to create a finished piece, a work of art from a lump of clay. Through the creative process of hand building both decorative and functional pieces, I have found my true passion!

This piece was inspired by a series in a local newspaper highlighting majestic trees and what they mean to the families who live in their shadows. The "Tree of Life" provides food, shelter, and beauty and reaches out to all of us."
