I began my study of ceramics with Alex Combs in 1970 with Alex Combs at the University of Alaska and have since established my own studio in Skowhegan, Maine. I continuously seek to develop my craft by attending pottery workshops throughout the country, including the Odyssey Center for Ceramic Arts in Asheville, North Carolina where I began the process of using silk screening methods on clay. My pots are made with high fire stoneware and porcelain clay. They are fired in a gas kiln to 2300 degrees F in a reduction atmosphere. I often use traditional Japanese and Chinese glazes.
