The molds are much better, the designs are more creative, products are getting better and we have more variety. Creative emphasis is stronger. Glazes, underglazes and overglazes are coming back into focus and the new unleaded glazes. The ceramist person needs to be encouraged to learn how to use them correctly and to capitalize on the many techniques available. We, as shop owners, need to constantly promote change. There is something for everyone.
To keep on doing what we have been doing: to be a better person tomorrow, greet each day with joy and greet each customer with a smile.

Who is a celebrity? We think they are people just like you, involved, interested and interesting. In Celebrity Clips, we introduce teacher, artist and shop owners in the hobby ceramics industry who are making a difference in their own way.
Located in Youngtown, Arizona, the first retirement community in the country, is a ceramic shop, owned and operated by a person with so much enthusiasm about ceramics and life in general, it makes you want to be a part of all the fun. Even though her successful business has tripled in size, it does not stop her from being a great teacher or a friend to all ot her students.
My first involvement was during my daughter’s high school years, only doing a few classes through the years due to family obligations. I again resumed classes in 1988 after my retirement and a move to Arizona. In 1991 1 started my own business. I am Duncan Certified and Hanovia Certified. I have been a member of IADCCT, (International Association of Duncan Certified Ceramic Teachers), for over 5 years and attend most of their educational functions. My specialty is filling the needs of people; whether it be in helping, listening or advising, I will always be there for them.
