Currently a full-time Professor of Ceramic Art at Kennesaw State University in the north Atlanta suburbs, I create these lovely pots whenever I can get a chance between my many responsibilities at work. My studio is in my one-car garage at home. In addition to selling my work here on Etsy, I am in represented by many prominent pottery and craft-focused galleries around the United States. My work has been featured in several Ceramics Monthly Magazines, a Pottery Making Illustrated, and in three books slated to be released later in 2014.

The pots you see here are all one-of-a-kind. I throw them on the potter's wheel, trim them, and then actually cut them all apart and put them back together exactly as they were.

The lines you see decorating the surface appear inside and out, because they are actual seams where the piece was completely cut apart. This is a nearly impossible feat, and therefore, I am the only one in the world who does this. I had to design my own specialty porcelain clay body to get them not to self-destruct in the drying and firing. I then spent years developing the perfect glaze, that will never crack, and adds durability to the ware. These pots will stand up to years of daily use, won't leak (some people think they would because they were cut apart, but I promise you, they won't) and are dishwasher and microwave safe.
