Once again, for the 2021 Chatham Artists Guild Studio Tour, I will have a COVID-safe outdoor display of my work, as I did last year. I will have a large selection of functional work available, fresh from the soda kiln. Please call or email if you have any questions.
I have been a studio potter for over 50 years, and taught ceramics in academia for 33 years. I retired in 2018 after 24 years running the clay program at Tennessee Technological University’s Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU and part of the School of Art, Craft, and Design. My wife Linda (an American historian) and I retired to the Chapel Hill area, where our son Morgan is on the faculty in Asian Studies at UNC. I make slab-built functional pottery and large coil-built vessels. Most of my work features intricate impressed pattern created with bisque-stamps that I carve. I select glazes that enhance the 3-D relief in the firing process. I fire my work to cone-8 in a cross-draft LPG soda kiln. You can find a lot more information about my work at my website, and please contact me if you have questions or comments or wish to arrange a studio visit to see my work in person.
