I am a retired high school art teacher. My focus while teaching was Ceramics and Mixed Media. I loved teaching. High School Students are AMAZING! We recently built a new house which took almost 2 years to build. I have an amazing studio, and I am getting back into the swing of things again. I have decided it is all about surface, I love surface, function, ritual and habits.
