About My Work
All my work is made by hand, either thrown on the wheel or built from a slab. Fingerprints and variations, even imperfections, show that each piece was formed from a lump of clay by human hands. As a ceramic artist I have the opportunity to bring a small amount of beauty into everyday household items. I like to make simple, functional pieces that find their way into regular use, not saved for special occasions.
I became fascinated by the potter's wheel as a high school art student. The daughter of artists, it wasn't long before I had my own wheel, kiln and work space in our family's old barn. Many years later I'm still fascinated by the ceramic process and it's myriad outcomes. In my home studio each Miller Made Pottery piece is formed from my two hands (though not without the support of a husband and my favorite studio assistants, my two young sons). I love sharing my work, and I love to invite people into the world of playing with clay. My goals in the studio are perennially to create and to share.
