She and her husband Rhyne live in Statesville and after raising their 3 children, Ben, Abby and Luke and a rewarding career of over 30 years as a Speech-Language Pathologist she opened the studio in 2019. Gin wanted to share her joy for clay with others and to build a community of makers. She took her first pottery class many years ago at Mitchell Community College and Bruce Jordan was her instructor! Gin considers herself a hand builder, using slab construction to make most of her pieces and tiles. She has taught Kids' Studio, "Taste of Clay" and Beginning Hand Building classes and several clay workshops for kids and adults. Gin is very grateful to be able to share her favorite way of making art with others!!
