Own my own studio complete with firing kilns.

After many year of expression through a variety of artistic media I found my true passion in ceramics, more specifically through the art of American Raku.
I deeply appreciate the entire journey from its beginning as a quiet contemplative moment when I first press my hands into a mass of clay. What follows entails the design and crafting of a piece, it’s burnishing, bisque, glazing and then completing with the Raku firing and post firing reduction phase.
My work grows and expands, subjected to a vast range of influences. I love pushing the limits of the clay, experimenting with and fabricating new glazes and firing techniques.
The mercurial nature of Raku often results in a creation that is unique, powerful and beautiful. This is a marvelous lesson in non-attachment that guides me and possibly others into a deeper understanding of self.
