I am an Architect, Ceramist and Printmaker now living in the beautiful San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. My wife (Denise) and I relocated here after 30 years of living and working in Los Angeles.
For my ceramics I work with various high fire stoneware and porcelain clay bodies that I fire in my custom build gas reduction kiln. My glaze palette consists of various Shinos, Tenmokus, Celadons, Nukas, Chuns and Ash reduction fired glazes.
I'm interested in variation of form and surface, striving to not repeat myself. I'm primarily interested in nonlinear paths of development in the objects I make. The common thread that stitches my work together is an overriding desire to be surprised by the outcome, as though I wasn’t present during the process.
Thanks for this opportunity to introduce myself. I look forward to learning much from the TeaChat community.
