Curious about pottery making as a small child, any museum visit always left Cheryl wondering what it must be like to create a vessel with earth, two hands, and a wheel. Over two decades later, she finally indulged that curiosity, and it was love at first mess.
Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Cheryl migrated to Austin, TX in 2005. She began studying ceramics in 2008 under the tutelage of some of the most knowledgeable potters within Austin's thriving pottery community. She currently maintains studio space at Austin Pottery and has featured her work locally in galleries in Texas and retail shops in the Pacific Northwest.
Cheryl enjoys creating functional items for practical use within the home. She jokingly refers to her style as "obsessive tedium." Her work commonly features her distinct carving style or hypnotic glaze patterns in light bodied stoneware, gas fired to cone 10.
Cheryl is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. Her current fixations outside of the studio include her dogs (and probably yours too), family, writing, trees, and travel.
