The Pacific Northwest was my home for over 40 years. Retiring from a career in forestry, I worked as a silviculturist and resource manager. The beauty of the northwest forests inspired my clay work and provided many of the textures found in my pieces.
Now I have moved to the family farm in Pennsylvania as the seventh generation of my family to live on this land. This will serve as another type of inspiration for all my hand-built slab work while still using textures from nature that makes my work so popular. I choose to work in porcelain clay, because of the fine texture and the way it takes a glaze, but I also do some stoneware and raku pieces.
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.
