I'm a clay artist living and working in the Pacific Northwest. I recently retired from a career in forestry, where I worked as a silviculturist and resource manager. Now the northwest forests inform my clay work: Douglas-fir bark, tree rings, or the negative spacing between trees... All are remnants of my experience that inspire my hand-built slab work to interweave texture, color, and interest for the viewer. Nearly all use porcelain clay, because of the fine texture and the way it takes a glaze.
If you are inspired by a piece and wish to have it interpreted in another way, I'm open to discussing a commission to fit your unique garden and home needs.
