2013/2015 – St Croix, VI

Having moved back to the Caribbean early in 2013, I’ve now been ‘home’ with my sturdy, much-modified ten year old Raku Tophat kiln for almost 2 years! This meant my work went back to Afro-Caribbean style to a great extent, though there are lingering influences of course from the wonderful time in Hawaii – and from the huge amount I learned in my first tropical urban environment, and first partly Asian culture, and in being part of Honolulu Potter’s Guild, all greatly appreciated.
At this point I’m trying to expand my studio again, and hope to build a much larger kiln before end of 2015. My daughter Merryn is also living here and we plan to collaborate on a thrown and decorated line of work, and have a studio intern soon.

I’ve just had my annual show (ongoing) at Bajo el Sol in St John, participated in Fireworks at Mango Tango, St Thomas, and have work in several St Croix stores (The Blue Mutt, Islandfire Glass, Danish West Indies Realty…) and am available for classes at the studio on Mahogany Road.
