About Us

About my Studio

I have been involved in ceramics for 57 years.  I have been an Ambassador for Duncan Enterprises for the past 17 years and have traveled many states and countries to certify hundreds of students to become teachers.  I have designed and taught several art projects in the local area school districts where over 30,000 children have participated.   Currently I give weekly classes in pottery decoration and clay hand building.   Every three months I teach classes for you to become a certified Duncan teacher, learning all aspects of the ceramics industry. 

Duncan Certified in Four Days!

Get Duncan certified in 4 days. You will do 16 projects of Essentials 1, 2, 3, and 4 which includes bisque, ware, instructions and paints.

Once you have completed the four classes, you will have the opportunity to join the International Association of Duncan Certified Teachers  IADCCT.
