I was drawn to ceramics because it can be approached in so many ways. It's both amazingly simple and incredibly complex. Shaping a ball of mud into an elegant vase is no small trick. I takes imagination, practice, patience and a good bit of science. I feel like I can take this medium in so many directions. My first introduction to ceramics was in college. Our course was intended to use clay to introduce 3-D design, a basic class in sculpture. As I moved on, elements of painting, print making, drawings are easily discovered as well .
I'm still learning, experimenting, and enjoying ceramics 40 years after my first encounters. Today, I work full time as an artist and sell my work locally In Boone NC. My. studio is up the. road, over the border, in Trade Tn. My wife and I live in woods, our home nestled in the mountains and my studio sits back in the trees. After years of running my own. business. and raising a family , I'm fully focused on my art. Look over my site. I hope you enjoy it. Try our noodle bowls!
