Life at the Lake

Thank you for visiting our web site and browsing our selection of hand-crafted stoneware.

We became fascinated with pottery in 1977 when, along with our young children, we visited Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico, and marveled at the distinctive hand coiled pots. It was not until 1999 that Joe found himself inspired sitting at a potter’s wheel in a class at Manassas Clay.   Elaine followed a few sessions later.   In 2007 we moved to Lake of the Woods, but continue weekly trips to Manassas for pottery classes.

After retiring from our positions as software engineers in 2005, we designed and built our house at Lake of the Woods with a pottery studio overlooking the lake.


Working with clay helps to keep our lives ‘centered’.
