When I was a boy I used to love to play in the mud, play with fire, and be surprised! Now after all these years I still play in the mud, play with fire, and get surprised. I make a range of pottery from porcelain and stoneware to Raku and sagger fired ware. The pieces may be glazed and/or burnished.
I love classical forms and try to give them a contemporary expression. My functional stoneware and porcelain is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. My Raku, sagger fired terra sigillata, and naked Raku are decorative and can be cleaned with a mild soap and a soft cloth. I live with my wife Melody, our dog, cat and a variety of chickens, turkeys, and bees, in Newfield Maine, where I also have my studio. This past year, Melody (a wonderful and talented baker) and I collaborated on a Bread Baking Cloche and techniques to enable you (in a few minutes of prep time) to bake brick oven, artisan breads in your own oven.
