I make my pieces with coiled stoneware and porcelain clay, creating surface textures as I join the coils and build up the forms. Most of my things are unglazed, and most were fired in a reducing atmosphere to cone 10.


I have worked in ceramics at the Hyde Park Art Center since 2000. I previously had done figure sculpture in clay at the Koh-Varilla Guild, a studio on the North Side of Chicago. If you’re interested in purchasing something or just want to say hello, please contact me at jltrestrail@gmail.com.
