New Dawn Pottery represents a new beginning.
Life is an intense journey that keeps taking me to paths that I never thought I would walk. I have found great healing and passion in this beautiful art form. Spending my days making functional pieces of ceramics from a ball clay in my studio gives me so much joy and fascinates me. It’s been a very meditative journey that allows me to explore and express myself as an artist and who I am as a person.
