I started my clay adventure at Appalachian State University in the mid 70’s, moving on to Penland, North Carolina where I met and worked with some remarkable artists and craft people.  Years later my goals are to produce strong, simple forms with minimal decoration, using the wood/soda aspect of the firing as a means to create subtle effects that emphasize the strength of the form.  I also fire with gas, working several different stoneware and porcelain clay bodies, glazing with shino glazes with wax resist brushwork with different overglazes.
