About

My Life in Clay

I started making pottery when I was 17 years old. My father helped me build a wood kick wheel and I kept it in the garage. When I graduated high school, I went on to college on a football scholarship. Up until then I thought I would become a history teacher, but I still gravitated towards the clay studio. My epiphany came when during a football game I worried that I would hurt my hands and would not be able to get to the studio to make pots. That is when my career took on a new direction. I got my masters degree in ceramics from University of Montana, and never looked back.
After many years of teaching ceramics at university, I retired and set up my own studio at home. Even though I enjoyed teaching very much, for the first time in a long time I am able to just make pots. It is how I meditate.
Wood firing is a process used by potters that look for natural one of a kind surfaces which are a result of using different types of wood as the fuel source. This process requires a great deal of time and intensive labor while preparing, maintaining and firing the kiln. During the past 15 years I have been firing my pots in an Anagama kiln. This requires the firing of pots without glaze over a period of many days. Burning large amounts of wood produces lots of ash which melts over the pots making a natural glaze on the surface.
I feel my forms have been enhanced by the warm colors, ash deposits, textures and patterns created by the mark of the fire. This natural process allows the viewer to share my experience of working with clay, from the moment my hands form the shape to the moment in the kiln,when the flame leaves its impression on the pot forever.

    I got hooked on pottery making as a teen and nothing else ever has come even close. I made it my career and my hobby and what I do to relax. My wife Amelia, who also has an Etsy Shop, does all of the postings and Tony keeps me company while I work.
