Pottery has been one of many arts and craft endeavors that Angela has participated in. It is an art form that she continues to take courses and workshops in and share her skills with others. Angela gets a great deal of enjoyment from taking the clay and shaping it on the pottery wheel into pieces that can be used and enjoyed by others. Opening the kiln after a glaze firing has been completed so always exciting and satisfying. It is especially so when others appreciate and enjoy her finished products. The pieces that you are viewing today represent many years of honing skills that are always changing.
