See my sculpture featured on the cover of American Art Collector 2012 http://www.alcovebooks.net/submit.html

My ceramic sculptures are created with earthenware clay using ancient hand building techniques. Combining slabs, coil, and pinch methods I create the unique sculptured items you see in my shop. Most of my surfaces are highly textured and are enhanced by the various glazes and metal oxides I like to use. Each piece is fired at least once to 1971 degrees (cone 04) or as many as 5 times to achieve unique finishes. Using the clay as my canvas I sometimes use post fired finishes like acrylic paint, colored pencils, gold finishes, and wax encaustic.

Check my blog to see works in progress and whats happening in my studio.

About

The lanquage of dreams

After working in the horticulture field for over 20 years another form of mud captured my attention. Never thinking that making things out of clay would become my full time occupation. I began making pots for my Bonsai collection. One thing lead to another and eventually I began teaching clay techniques to others as I learned. My work has evolved and continues to do so. I stay very busy exhibiting and creating my work. I feel very fortunate to be able to spend my time being creative and sharing what I do with others.

    Over 18 years ago my journey with clay began. I was expanding my collection of Bonsai trees and decided i wanted some artfully unique pots to put them in. One way to get what I wanted was to make then myself. Easier said than done.
