I have been making pots for
over 30 years. My introduction to clay occurred in Logan Utah,
home of Utah State University, where I began by taking an
adult education night course, beginning wheel throwing. I
followed that up with some college level ceramic courses, not
pursuing any degree as I already had two college degrees and
was not interested in more.
My first studio was located in Logan Utah, and after ten plus
years my wife, Barbara, and I relocated to New England. We
spent approximately 10 years in central Massachusetts, Barre.
During this time I worked a full time job at an insurance
company and only was able to work in clay on weekends when
We moved to Sagamore, a village on Cape Cod, and I opened my
current studio in 1999. I am now, once again, a full time
I find the process of making pottery very challenging and
rewarding. It is the combination of loving the process and the
challenge and excitement from constant experimentation that
keeps me motivated. Every kiln opening is anticipated with
excitement as there is always something in the firing to
inspire and motivate.
