I live and work in an old brick grade school in the small Wisconsin village of Rock Springs. I throw and trim my pottery in what used to be the gym, and glaze and fire in the cafeteria. I share the studio with my wife Sandra who is known for her porcelain sculptures.

My work is characterized by the grace and simplicity of the forms and the complexity of the glazes. On most of my pieces I spray multiple layers of glaze and ash to convey a sense of balance, timelessness and serenity like lichen on granite.  Although I studied pottery at Cornell University in upstate New York while getting a degree in labor economics, I am basically self taught.  I have been a full time potter since 1975.

I am heartened by customers who come back and tell me they enjoy looking at and using my pots.
