Thanks for visiting to see my clay work. Since first starting to work with clay in 1981, I’ve been intrigued by glazes. Like glass, their durable beauty can outlast nearly any other product of human making, and the infinite possible combinations of materials to produce them makes them, to me, infinitely intriguing.

Although I admire perfect glossy surfaces that show control over the ceramic process, I’m more interested in surface variation from less predictable glazes. Some ways I pursue such patterns are by prospecting materials from the nearby mountains, combining glazes that interact well, and designing glazes that promote crystallization.

I’m pleased with many of my results and hope you enjoy them as well.
