I moved into this studio in 1986. It is a beautiful, tranquil space and I feel very fortunate to have it. I was able to design much of it myself and it has proved to be a wonderful space to work in. I have a nice view of the pond and enjoy watching the ducks, birds, frogs, and other wildlife that frequent there. The kiln was also built in 1986 and it is basically a Minnesota Flat-top car kiln with an arch. It has been fired countless times and is now yielding its very best pots, which means it is sorely in need of repair.
