Welcome to my Webpage
I am developing this page to provide information about myself as a ceramic  artist, how-to information about firing processes, contact information for workshops, and a gallery of various techniques that I have used over the years. 

 I celebrated working in clay for half a century in 2016.  I find the medium to provide a direction of pursuit in creative processes that never fades. Bear with me as these pages continue to develop and provide more information on alternative processes. Select from the drop-down menu in the subjects above to navigate to topics of your interests. I will continue to add different processes and techniques plus upcoming events, so come back and visit from time to time. I update workshop schedules, exhibitions, and activities regularly.
