Oregon Art Beat - OPB
I first discovered pottery in high school at George School in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
I was immediately drawn to it. At the University of Oregon, I learned about colored clays
under the tutelage of Allan Kluber a graduate teaching fellow. Upon graduation in 1973,
I began my career as a studio potter. Since then, I have been fascinated by and focused
on pursuing and perfecting techniques for creating design and pattern on pottery using colored
clays. "Nerikomi" and "millefiore" are two terms used to describe the work
I do. All of my work is stoneware and fired in a gas kiln. Making, living with and using pottery
in my everyday life adds a richness that I appreciate daily.
