After retiring as a goldsmith, I discovered clay in 2013 and knew within 30 minutes that I was in for a wild and wonderful ride into a fabulous new medium. The transition from precious metals to humble clay has been rewarding and exciting. My work is strictly “one of a kind” slab built art pottery and sometimes involves extensive hand carving.
Working in this new, expanded scale has set me free to go artistically
where I could never go in jewelry design. Each piece I make is an original exploration of line, volume, surface, form and color in clay.
Some work is functional, and some is strictly sculptural.
