I am self-taught as a potter and have been handbuilding stoneware pieces to sell since 1976. I work by myself. I have no apprentice or employees. My focus as I work is to create an object, which embodies an image that can be a useful tool for understanding.

I like clay because working with a material that undergoes such radical changes, and working in three dimensions helps me integrate the sensuous and the intellectual. I often use functional objects as forms for images because he assert the scale of ordinary life. This is where I believe we need art to function.
