Strictly Functional Ceramics

To make it short I’ll skip years and years of my life before pottery. Suffice to say after spending 30(ish) years working I decided to retire and realized for once I had some free time – this was an opportunity to explore. After some fits-and-starts I took a wheel-throwing class at Club Mud Ceramics, a clay-art cooperative here in Eugene. I was immediately taken by the wonderful blending of the technical (my background) and the artistic. After eight Wednesday classes in 1998 I was hooked. In the ensuing years I have taken classes at the U of O and LCC, and attended numerous workshops in an effort to develop my skills and improve the aesthetics of my craft. As my business name implies, I focus my work primarily on functional ware for the home.
