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.
