Denise fell in love with ceramics while she was a student at Saline High School. Now in her second year at Siena Heights University, she is interested in wheel thrown porcelain and the endless colors of high fire and mid range glazes, including crystalline.

Their work is wheel thrown, possibly altered, and hand built. Glaze fire options include cone 6 electric and cone 10 gas fire reduction.
