Announcement   I am a potter, architectural renderer and teacher. I began making pottery at the age of fifteen, and have been working in clay ever since. My formal schooling is in architecture. While I am not a practicing architect, this training has taught me to use careful, precise workmanship in my pottery and drawings.

ABOUT THE POTTERY
I am influenced by many pottery traditions, especially the work of the ancient Chinese potters. I am inspired by the graceful, refined forms of their pottery, and the skill of their glazing techniques. In my designs I create a harmony between pottery form and surface.

All my work is made on the potter's wheel. I glaze my pieces with lead-free, nontoxic glazes, and fire them to 2230 degrees, to transform them into a dense, durable stoneware. All my pottery is dishwasher and microwave safe.

I create many memorial urns, in a number of sizes, shapes and colors.
The full-size urns are for occasions when the family decides to keep all the ashes of the person who has passed. Sharing urns are used when family members each wish to keep a portion of the ashes. When the ashes are scattered except for a small amount, a keepsake urn is appropriate. The
smaller urns are also suitable as pet urns.

ABOUT THE DRAWINGS
I create architectural drawings in pen and pencil of notable buildings.
The drawings, done with attention to detail, portray the character of these
architectural treasures. I offer limited edition prints on archival paper.
Each print is matted and ready for framing. Once an edition of 75 is
complete, the edition is permanently closed.

I began my pottery training in 1965 at the age of fifteen, and have been making pottery almost continuously ever since. My formal education includes a degree in architecture, which has influenced my approach to design and my interest in geometric surface patterns. Many of the forms I create are inspired by Chinese examples from the ninth to seventeenth centuries.

I taught pottery and design for many years at the college level, and now focus on creating my own work and teaching a select number of students privately. My reputation rests on my experience and skill in throwing (working on the potter's wheel) and the intricacies of glazing.

As a potter, designer and teacher I strive to produce the best pottery I can make. Every piece receives careful attention at every stage of the production process, and no piece leaves the studio unless I am completely happy with it..
