Full time production potter since graduating with a BA from Humboldt State in Northern Ca. Been doing art shows since early 70's.I'm a glaze and fire potter-pots are the canvas-
I do juried art shows in the western states-I have several galleries in Nor-Cal that carry my work.i have two reduction kilns a slat kiln and several electrics and a raku kiln as well.
Clay has shaped my life since a high school class. I have been involved with all types of ceramics from slab to slipware to throwing. I have settled on High fire porcelain production wares for the kitchen as a livelihood. I make all glazes from scratch and I specialize in brightly colored wares for everyday use that are durable.

Extreme offshore tuna fishing off north coast of Ca.I need the sea as its been around me since birth and plan on my ashes to go there as well.I have to many interests and to little time.
I have a few boston whaler boats for fishing and diving and do so every year during our brief summer ocean season here.
I have taken fish photos underwater for 30 years now and make ceramic fish from those experiences.
I still love clay and dealing with good customers.
