I have been a wood fire potter since my first wood fire experience in 1986. My current goal is to explore the range of color and depth the anagama wood firing process presents by experimenting with varied clay bodies and glazes that best registers the drama of the firebox coal pile to the subtleties of the flame path and flame impingement.

Most of my forms are thrown on the wheel. I amusing several different clay bodies that are textured with silica and quartz inclusions that are thrown with gesture and spontaneity. For me the process begins with challenging myself with the cup form, yunomi, and teabowls and applying the fluidity of the smaller forms to larger vessels and sculptures. In the end the works are fired for 7 days in the anagama breathing life and character into each piece.
