I am a New Mexico/Colorado potter, spending summers in my studio and cabin in Crestone, Colorado and winters in my Las Cruces studio and home. I prefer to throw, and often alter whatever I’ve thrown. I enjoy sculpting, mostly a variety of animals, but also human busts. I do some hand-building, and my wall pockets are quite popular. I enjoy experimenting with different clays, glazes, slips, and other finishes. (Friends remark how much variety they see in my work.) I am fortunate to have access to electric kilns, as well as gas and wood-fired ones.
I came up with the name MPerfectPots for my clay hobby for a couple of reasons. The “M” stands for Moore, and also, tongue-in-cheek, it is a “statement” that my pots are imperfect! I keep striving for the perfect pot, but am not there yet!
I have been a member of the Potters’ Guild of Las Cruces for about 8 years, and currently am the co-chair of the annual Holiday Sale event.
You can also find my work in the Deming Art’s Center, Deming, NM and in Southern Colorado at the Crestone Artisan’s Gallery in Crestone, CO.
