SLIDESHOW

Brief Biography:   My first experience with clay occurred while I was studying painting at Carlisle College of Art and Design in Cumbria, England in 1974. Ceramics was a compulsory course and I was a somewhat reluctant student; I immediately disliked introductory hand building. After a few months, I was introduced to the potter's wheel, and although I was a painter first, the wheel work captured my interest. I thus began a serious study of ceramics and graduated in ceramics in 1978. I worked as a production potter and designer in England, Scotland, and Wales, before coming to the U.S. In 1992. Since then, I have maintained a studio practice in central Pennsylvania.

I have taught workshops on a variety of topics for participants of all levels. Contact me if interested in setting up a workshop for your organization. My work has appeared in publications and been exhibited at a number of shows, including Strictly Functional Pottery National.
