Diane (Dee) and her husband Dave have collected pottery over 40 years as they have traveled around the USA. When Diane retired she wanted to continue that tradition but instead of collecting others pottery, she wanted to create her own pieces. In the fall of 2015, she went to Doors Open at Cream City Clay, and fell in love with the facility and the people. While creating functional pottery for use in the home, she has been working on developing interesting glazes and altering pieces. Her pieces have also included creating one of kind Christmas angels.
