"We have been working together in clay for nearly 40 years. Each piece moves back and forth between the two us to complete all of the intricate steps involved in our work. As nationally recognized potters, we have participated in nearly every major art fair in the county. We are members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, Piedmont Craftsmen and Carolina Designer Craftsmen. Our work is available by appointment at our Mars Hill studio where custom work is always welcome. For the past 8 years we have been members of Ariel Gallery, located in Asheville, one of the most prominent craft co-operative galleries in the country."
