Stronger Than Stone
The Story of StoneWear Ceramics
We all know that life is ever-changing. For me, after 17 years of teaching, 28 years of marriage and raising two beautiful children, I thought I had a plan — but life decided otherwise.
In 2019, my life was filled with significant change resulting from tragic, unexpected personal loss. That year, I lost my beloved brother to mental illness and had a severe accident that left me stunned and in place of grief, doubt, and fear.
In the midst of my recovery, I was forced to reconsider my life as I had been living it, and I knew I had to make changes in order to heal. I took time to re-acquaint myself with the moments and experiences that brought me simple, unrefined joy. I turned to my art-making to find peace and inspiration, and suddenly, after a year filled with so much loss, I began to create, and I found hope.
I am so thankful to my husband for supporting me through this journey, to my mother for her unwavering strength, to my daughter for being my biggest fan, and to my close friends and family that have supported me through this period of growth.
