After retiring from careers in zoo management and animal medicine, Kathie and Ed settled in central Texas and have now found time to indulge their artistic interests. Kathie has studied with several local potters and is completely enthralled by the process. She is influenced by two main sources: her admiration of nature with its beauty and intricacies. She also finds that several historic American art potteries such as; Rookwood, Newcomb, and Weller are continuing inspirations. She enjoys the challenge of "painting" with glaze.
Ed has had instruction in the art of hand building and throwing of clay with a local artist and has been greatly encouraged by his studies with the potters at ClayWays Studio. He produces all the bisque ware that Kathie decorates, so it has become a team effort.
