About

I started making Jizo statues in the ceramics department of ZenWorks at Great Vow Zen Monastery in Clatskanie, Oregon. Since my stay there I have set up shop in Portland Oregon, where I hope to continue making images of Jizo and other spiritual icons. Jizo reminds me to be benevolent, optimistic and courageous, and I hope my statues have a similarly positive effect on others.
