2017 booth #.

I create an imaginarium, a place where a user or viewer can go, to experience a different time, and, place. I create a forum for personal improvisation. Memory and imagination provide us a perspective of reality, and of the complexity of our lives. I am stimulated by an ever growing body of knowledge of man’s innate abilities and the effect of color on our emotions.

My process includes the use of stoneware and porcelain clays. My work is formed on a wheel and altered, as well as hand formed. I use slips, stains, and glaze for my color palette. I fire in a soda atmosphere to “cone 10” or 2300 F. My work is vitreous and durable.
