My experience with clay began about 20 years ago with classes at Aberthau, West Point Grey, in Vancouver, B.C. My fascination with clay has evolved from throwing simple pots, to throwing better simple pots, and to rolling, cutting and raku firing tiles. I like simple, clean lines with just a hint of detail, something that makes the observer want to pick up my creation to take a second look.
I am currently a member of the Delta Potters Association, located in Tsawwassen (Delta), British Columbia, Canada, and I’m a former member of the Aberthau Potters Guild in Vancouver.
My education in clay is through classes, workshops, specialty firings, conferences/symposiums, and of course lots of reading.
