Hello. I recently discovered your beautiful work and am interested in having you write a process article for Pottery Making Illustrated magazine. If you are interested, please send me an email and I can give you a few more details. Holly

for your interest and compliments! At this time I’m working with tribal members as we are attempting to revive and reclaim
some of the ancient ceramic traditions of our ancestors here on Turtle Island. There is some hesitancy among Tribal members here
about sharing specific techniques at this time with the broader public and i want to honor that.
There are so many ceramic cultures and so many techniques available to the general public, but many of the traditionalists here
would like to keep some of our own techniques to be shared among ourselves. I hope that doesn’t sound selfish?
We really want tribal members to feel the attachment to their own specific ancestral traditions, and that some of these are
distinctly their own. I think your magazine is a great idea though and a great outlet
for artists to express themselves and share their discoveries!
