I create highly decorative and colorful ceramic wares using high-density white ware clay. Each piece is produced by hand. By throwing the individual pot on a potter’s wheel, using a hand building technique or some combination of both. My ceramic career began in 1975 while attending college in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I became totally immersed in the process. The endless creation of ceramic work and advances in the technical and safety aspects of clay, it was only a natural progression to move from the subtle earth tones of stoneware to the bright and dynamic colors of underglazes. Thus, the eclectic creation of fun, bright and colorful ceramic art. All work, from beginning, to fruition, is the sole endeavor of the artist. Notably my work “Running Man” was purchased and resides in the Smithsonian’s Renwick Museum of American Craft.
