When I’m not creating architecturally inspired ceramic objects — water tanks, industrial edifices, granaries, silos, etc. — I still enjoy jumping on my Leach-style treadle wheel to make utilitarian pots. Having grown up in the pottery-rich St. Croix Valley of Minnesota and Wisconsin, I was introduced to "Minngeisota" pots and wood firing at an early stage of my ceramic education. I ascribe my fondness for ceramic decal transfers to several influences: growing up in a family-run corner grocery store full of mid-century advertising and packaging; matriculating through my undergraduate art studies at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls at the height of the Pop Art era; learning how to silk screen at UW-RF before taking my first clay class; and perpetuating a desire to personalize and contemporize my ceramic vessels.
