About Deb I use slab, slip and the wheel to create forms that are
visually appealing and feel natural functionally.
Inquire about custom orders.

My Work

Depending on the subject matter and the time of year, I handbuild, slip cast or use the wheel to express new ideas and themes that connect to my life. Typically, I experiment with color and texture to emphasize a form. Each piece I create is original. Find me around San Francisco showcasing my work or engaging the community through art related events.

Take a Class

Activate your hands, awaken your creativity and exhale. What many people find captivating about clay is the process and the tactile experience.

Let me turn you on to clay!

Small Groups

I offer private and small group lessons out of my studio that focus on hand- building or the pottery wheel. Classes can be customized to align with individual schedules and the lessons can reflect your personal goals. No experience needed! Kids under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.


If you’re looking for a guest artist or a part-time art teacher, let’s chat! I hold a California Teaching Credential and spent nearly 20 years in the classroom as a studio art educator. I’m also passionate about working in the community to connect people to creative expression and each other. I’ve organized multi-faceted and thematic art endeavors with schools, community centers and families.

Large Groups

The studio can comfortably seat up to 30 participants for fun ceramic experiences. Parties, Corporate Team Building and Private Events are our specialty. Please visit the Spark Ceramics website to learn more about what we do and how we do it. As co-founder of Spark, I can ensure a top notch workshop that includes relaxation, learning and fun!
