Announcement    After a week long road trip I am ready to dive into the studio and make some pots. The first pots will start coming out of the kiln next week!

My work is all one of a kind, handmade on a wheel. They are all high fired using a variety of glazes that I have developed. Everything is food and dishwasher safe.

Well crafted, artistic and functional pottery.

Since I was very young I have made things for myself to use. Early on I made toys out of scraps of wood. As I got older I continued to work with wood but made things I could use, like bowls or a chair. I made a lawnmower that I used for several years to earn a few bucks. In high school I learned to work with metal.

On a whim, I took a pottery class at The Art League School in Alexandria, VA. Clay was just what I was looking for. The second piece I ever made is a mug that I still own and use on occasion. Finished pottery is very functional and I can make many things with a lump of clay. I enjoy working the material directly with my hands.

For over 20 years I have also worked on developing my own glaze recipes. With one exception, the glazes you see here are the result of those many years of testing. Atakaki is a glaze recipe that was given to me by a pottery teacher long ago. All of my glazes are safe to use with food.

I have spent many years honing my skills as a potter. All of my work that I consider less than perfect is broken up with a hammer. Only the best pieces are offered for sale.

I hope you enjoy using what I have made.

    For over 25 years I have been working in clay and perfecting my craft. Each piece is made entirely by me, by hand. I take great pride in my artisanship and will never offer any work that I feel is unsatisfactory.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

If you are looking for a piece that I make and cannot find, or would like it in a different glaze, please contact me. I make all of my own glazes and only use them.

If you want me to make something you don't see, I am willing to discuss it with you. But I make my pots only. I will not copy another design. I make all of my own glazes and only use them.

Care instructions

My pots are well made and durable. They are fine to clean in the dishwasher.

How long does it take to ship an order?

Unless you have requested a special order, all items listed are available. I almost always ship by the next business day. If I get an order by Noon Eastern US time (UTC - 05:00) I will usually ship it that same day.

How do you ship?

I use the US Postal Service for all of my shipping.

I spend a considerable amount of time and effort to make each piece. I pack each piece with that in mind.

I now use recyclable materials for nearly every bit of packing material and boxes. I even use a paper tape with a starch based glue!
