It’s forty-three years now since I began working with clay producing functional pottery and one-of-a-kind pieces. Porcelain has been my primary medium and I’ve been fortunate to have my work represented across the United States. In 2005, I changed my focus to concentrate on tiles and mosaics. I like this format to interpret nature’s forms.
