Originally from Maplewood, NJ, 12 miles west of NYC, I moved to Bozeman, MT in 2015 to pursue a full-time career in pottery. Although I received a degree in Ceramics from New Jersey City University, I consider myself mostly self-taught.

In addition to making pottery, I’m passionate about selling handmade goods. It’s important to be aware of where our material goods are coming from and how they are made. 

As the maker behind Basiclai, I have an opportunity to further the human interaction associated with obtaining our belongings and to reconnect us with the value of our possessions.
