"I have worked with ceramics my entire professional life as an archaeologist. By taking the series of ceramics classes at Grand Valley State University, I have greatly expanded my knowledge of ceramic materials, technology, and artistry. I also have expanded my knowledge of how Native Americans from West Michigan manufactured and created their own ceramics. But more importantly, working in clay has provided me with a method of expression for the things I love the most: the traditions and world views of the first nations of this area, and my love of Michigan's great and small lakes and its denizens."
