Bound by tradition, with an aspiration for originality, my work is a reflection of the world about me. I create a small volume of ceramic items. I believe that cups, and other functional items are sculptural. My surfaces are either pictorial or the application of a gem like coating. I am free to create that which I envision. In fact, I have some older pieces in the "Land of Crazy Ideas." I have worked in ceramics for fifty years. Learning, seeing, and teaching. For forty years I have maintained a pottery studio at 514 Kelly Ave., Half Moon Bay, Ca. I offer classes, workshops, Home Schooling, corporate events, and, of course, my own work.
