I create inviting objects. Pots that draw the viewer into their surfaces and invite touch, use, and visual investigation. My studio practice is informed by functional pottery traditions with an emphasis on the enthusiastic exploration of local materials, process, and form. My drive is to create something both of a long time ago, today, and tomorrow. The labor intensive process of wood firing lends itself to creating deep, layered, surfaces that give vitality to the wild clays I use. The kiln is my collaborator, a trusted but pleasantly unpredictable partner lending its voice to mine to create something both of a time long ago, today, and tomorrow.

I graduated from the College of Wooster in Ohio with a BA in English, and began working with clay shortly after while applying to The Japan Exchange and Teaching Program. I lived on the southern coast of Shikoku Japan as an English teacher and self-taught potter. Four years later I returned to America as an apprentice working under Jeff Shaprio. I worked with Jeff for 16 months learning how to fire atmospheric kilns. I lived in St. James, NY on Long Island where I built a small wood and salt kiln that I fired using some local materials and recycled untreated pallet wood from 2016 to the fall of 2017, and have just recently started my MFA at SUNY New Paltz in New Paltz, New York.
