I consider myself the accidental potter. I took my first ceramics course in 1985 to fulfill a general education requirement while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Great Falls. I went on to earn my degree and teach third grade for a few years. During that time I continued making pots and learning as much as I could about the process.
In 1990 I decided that I wanted to give up teaching to study pottery. In 1992 I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Montana in Missoula. I have been making pottery full time in Great Falls since then. First, as a potter sharing a space with 2 other potters and then opening my own studio, Eve Pottery, in 1999.
I work primarily in porcelain and fire in an electric kiln. I love making one of a kind decorative work as well as every day functional ware. My hope is that the pots I make bring joy to those that use them.
