I have been making pottery for almost 8 years. Two years ago I started attending Valencia College and was recently hired as a studio assistant in the art department. I mostly create high-temperature pottery that is fired to cone 10. I love to experiment with lots of glazes in hopes of achieving vivid colors and textures—and through lots of trials and errors, I have accomplished that. I love to create functional work that can be used. There is something incredibly satisfying about crafting a piece of pottery that isn't only art but serves a purpose. I am lucky enough to be apart of such a rich and supportive pottery community whilst constantly being inspired by my colleagues and peers.
