Retired Firefighter Pursues Lifelong Dream

Hi, I am a retired Firefighter. I worked for the City of Pueblo for 30 years. During that time I continued my lifelong dream of working in clay. When I retired I was able to devote myself full time to my passion.

My studio is in my home, occupying an attached solar heated greenhouse. This is where I throw and make. I have two kilns. One is a commercial electric kiln that i bisque my pots in, and the other is a gas fired car kiln that I designed and built myself (with help from my sons!). The first firing reaches a temperature of 1970 degrees F and serves to strengthen the pottery so it can be glazed. This firing lasts for 8-12 hours depending on the pieces in the kiln. The glazed pieces are fired in the gas kiln to a temperature of 2170 degrees F, and takes anywhere from10-14 hours to complete.
I then grind the bottoms with a diamond pad so as to prevent scratches on your furniture.

I also make Ceramic Sculpture and have been lucky enough to have been selected to several National Exhibits. My full bio can be seen at my website at

Thanks for visiting!

I ship all items "at cost." This means we charge exactly what it costs to ship by USPS plus materials. Whenever possible, we use USPS boxes. We realize the cost of shipping has increased and we make every effort to keep the cost as low as possible by packaging in the smallest boxes possible to insure safe shipping.

I use new and/or recycled materials for shipping. All items are securely wrapped and double boxed to absorb shock.

In the rare event that an item is broken during shipment, it will be replaced promptly at no charge. I may ask for a photo of the broken item.

We do our best to post accurate shipping prices, but sometimes the cost for shipping your item(s) is lower. In this case, we will promptly refund the overage by the same method you paid. You will receive an email notification.

"International Buyers Please Note:

- Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility.
- Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
- These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight or shipping company or when you pick the item up, do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.

We will not state “gift” on the package unless it actually is a gift from us to you. We fill out custom forms accurately and truthfully, so please do not ask us to falsify information of any kind. We claim full retail value on our customs forms for insurance purposes.
