As a painter, a package designer, a textile colorist, and a silkscreen printer, color and texture have always been pivotal ingredients throughout all my creations.
I have formulated a unique clay technique that gives my ceramic pieces their distinctive appearance. I call my process "fiveclays".
By leaving the exterior of my pieces unglazed this enables the natural earth tones, exquisite layers and seductively tactile surfaces of the various clays to be expressed and appreciated.
The painterly textures in the exterior surfaces are the result of salts, fluxes, paper clays, washes, engobe slips and my mix of clays.

I invite you to visit for more details and to see my most recent body of ceramic work.
