About

I live in upstate New York, just outside the city of Rochester, and have been working in pottery for many years now and it's still exciting and new.

The ability of clay to form different shapes is a source of (almost) endless fascination with me. When making my pieces I draw inspiration from other artists and pieces, both modern and pre-modern. However, this is limited to influencing the shapes of what I'm trying to make - no copies here! It's all original.

I enjoy viewing Asian art and get a lot of motivation and inspiration from that source. While my personal tastes run into the more streamlined modern art I feel that the pieces I produce are a nice mix of the modern and old.
