Finding Your Center

You’re seated on a stool, your knees spread out at sixty degrees, wide enough to fit the bowl of a potter’s wheel. Your right foot balances the pedal, while your hands grace the sides of the damp, tender clay. You don’t know yet what this clay will become, but, together, you and the clay will find a place of being centered.

This is the experience of being a potter, and this is the memory that propelled me into the world of art. Dentistry, at its heart, is an art form, taking pottery to the scale of a tooth. But before I held dental composite, I held the simple clay of the Earth. And, grasping at nature, I became an artist.

Beyond writing, my art forms include pottery, jewelry making, origami (with special interest in making jewelry and magnets based in origami work), and miniatures.

Many of my art pieces have found homes with creative buyers, and now they have their very own page on my blog. CLICK HERE to find out more about my art and check back often for updates!
