"Jewish traditions are very impor-
tant in my life. Although I do not
spend a lot of time attending formal
religious services, I have been active
in a variety of Jewish groups and
engage in spiritual practices. My
Judaica reflects my spirit and identi-
ty, and I like to make items that
celebrate ceremonies and rituals."
Mickelson finds that ceramics
projects, even those done on com-
mission, continue to feel more like

in control of her schedule as she
completes projects at home, where
her significant other, Mark Wilson,
has his base as a computer consult-
The couple have two cats, and
she volunteers at the Zimmer
Foundation, a sanctuary for aging
homeless cats. Kittens and cats often
appear in her ceramics projects.
"Working with clay is a ground-
ing, meditative outlet for my
creative energies while connecting
me with people in a personal way,"
Mickelson says. "I get such a thrill
knowing that people are using and
enjoying my artwork. Customers
have told me how they use my
bowls, mugs and other designs,
and that delights me.
"Doing art shows brings me in
contact with people I might not
otherwise have met. At my last
show, a guy bought one of my big
bowls, and after chatting with him
for a while, I realized that his grand-
father had done surgery on my knee
more than 30 years ago.
"The people I meet at shows —
the artists and folks that stop by
my booth — are important to what
I love about being an artist." El
