MY HANDS HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE DESIRE TO BE BUSY, and I have been making and selling pottery and rugs since I was a teenager. For many years, with my husband and creative partner, Howard Peller, I owned and operated Fioriware Art Pottery in Zanesville Ohio. After closing our facility in 2006, I opened a studio at my home in Roseville, Ohio, where I continue the handmade pottery and rug making traditions that sustain my creative spirit. My new company, Rosehill Design, offers exceptionally made redware pottery and rug designs that are informed by my affection for color, pattern, shape, and utility. It is now here, on my farm, that I continue to contribute to the legacy of great art and craft products produced in this region.
