Barb moved to Bloomington, Indiana from Connecticut in 1972 with her former husband to complete his doctorate at Indiana University. She began her pottery career in 1984 when she took a couple ceramics classes through IU’s continuing studies program at the IMU. She had a friend who was a potter and decided it would be a fun path to pursue. Barb has been a full-time potter since 1993 and has traveled to art fairs near and far. Her high fired pottery is food, dishwasher and microwave safe, and her unique earring holders are now sold all over the United States as a fine, functional piece of artwork with a Southern Indiana origin!
