I make ceramic forms of abstract, figurative nature. These vessels may be derived from the torso or from basic bottles. Artist statement below.
I am the featured artist at Collective Visions Gallery in Bremerton, WA. Join us for the opening reception 7 June 2019.
Over the past fifteen years my work has evolved. I have focused on through various themes but the figure always returns
My work is fired in either an anagama kiln or a soda kiln. These firings bring together a group of congenial and professional ceramic artists. These events in Seabeck are highlights of the year.
The show is on! Hope to see you!
