Ceramic artist for over 20 years who splits time between Indio and the NorCal Gold Country.
As a retired engineer, I enjoy the depth of exploration that ceramics provides.
The variety of clays, glazes and firing processes offer an endless combination
of possibilities, and an infinite opportunity for research, testing, and experimentation.
My preferences lean toward those processes that produce “one of a kind” pieces,
like Raku, Pit Firing, Salt, and Crystalline glazing. These methods are technically challanging
and actually allow the firing process to have a hand in the artistic outcome.
The variety of results, makes opening the kiln similar to the anticipation and thrill of
unwrappinng a Christmas present.
