About

Controlling the chaos of flame is my challenge.

Hello and welcome to my store. What is Raku? It's a unique form of pottery all to its own. The firing technique sets it apart from usual production pottery in that the glazes are designed to work with fire, oxygen and a quick cool down. The results are completely unpredictable in its flashing and colours, quite often bringing out metallic coppers, golds, greens, pinks and blues. It is purely decorative, cannot be reproduced, and view my work as sculpture or wall art.

I've been specializing in Raku for over 25 years now, developing my own unique style useing this process. I first learned the technique at The Alberta College of Art and Design aquiring my Undergrad in Ceramic Arts, and further studies at the University of Quanajuato in Mexico for my Masters. I also taught for many years in Central Mexico and the US, now residing in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Each piece is hand built, never making two of the same. Many have noticed an influence of the Mexican culture in my work through playfulness of forms and whimsical nature, yet grounded by the earth tones of the Raku colours. The highly designed surfaces (accentuated with composite gold leaf) are also a well recognized feature to my work. Modern design compliments tradition while whimsical plays with emotion.

I have spent many years developing my own style with this Raku technique as I wanted my work to be recognizable. When you see it, you know who made it.
