She received a BA (in English literature) from Harvard and a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. In 1996 she was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Montana Arts Council. In December 2006 she had the distinction of being the only ceramist to be awarded a $50,000 unrestricted Target fellowship from United States Artists. In May of 2007 she was one of the artists profiled in the PBS documentary Craft in America. She has taught at Pomona College, the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and has given workshops at many schools and art centers nationally. Her work is in many public and private collections and, most important, in many kitchens throughout the country.
