Artist Statement

Mom and Leonard, having fun

In the summer of 2011, I went to help at the volunteer camp at Ghost Ranch, this was the second time meeting members of NMPCA (New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists), we all had a great time and it was nice to see Pot Hollow blossom.  That is where two friends asked me if I would like to help and be on the board for NMPCA. Years later I am still helping the organization.  We have a new studio at Ghost Ranch after the 2015 flood took out Pot Hollow.

Being part of NMPCA is a great way to meet potters and ceramists who enjoyed the feel of clay as much as I do. I have been working with clay for eleven years. I have been amazed at the diversity of ceramics and pottery in New Mexico and the talent we have as artists.  I look forward to meeting more people and developing my craft. 

Over the past few years, I keep developing my skills working with different clay bodies and seeing how different glazes effect the pieces. Also different firing techniques. I do a combination of dipping, brushing, & spraying my glazes. The combination of glazes with the clay is what intrigues me.

My home studio is in Albuquerque, in the summer I use my outdoor space by the pond and enjoy my flowers and the wildlife.  My current project is my raku kiln, but I do enjoy the results of my electric kiln. Come by my printing company which I share with my nephews. There I have a gallery to view my work. You can also go to my Etsy store showing my current work.
