Barb’s experience with clay started in a classroom setting, however, through time is has become largely self-directed.  Barb studied at the Dundas Valley School of Art in Canada.  She has sold pieces in Utah at numerous shows, across the country through her online store (, at nature centers and small shops. In addition to teaching at the Schweinfurth, Barb teaches classes out of her home studio to children and adults, with instruction encompassing both hand building and throwing on the wheel.
