Subjects taught at EAC:
Handbuilding in Clay
My claywork reflects my respect for the formal elegance and decorative restraint of traditional domestic (functional) pottery. Although many of my pieces involve the combination of handbuilt and wheel-thrown forms, my goal is to bring the various elements together as a harmonious whole and avoid jarring disjunctures.
Approach to teaching:
I find in each student the opportunity to explore materials, tools and techniques with someone who will use them in ways that surprise us both.
