And here are a few early clay pieces. I started throwing pots while I was a student at Notre Dame, then went to the Banff School of Fine Arts, where I studied with Les Manning. I then made pots in Medicine Hat and Montreal. I sold some pots to help pay for my education, gave others away to family and friends, and broke some.

I’ve done sculptures, worked with porcelain, fired with salt, and made raku pieces. I’ve made teapots, tea-bowls, plates, cups, batter-bowls, covered pots, and other stuff. These pieces are reduction-fired, Cone 10 stoneware.
