I spent 29 years in the Air Force, retired in March 2004, started Fireblaze Pottery later that year, and now make pottery full time.   


I participate in several art events each year and show my work in a local gallery, all of which are listed on the Events page.


A piece of my work is featured in the Lark publication "500 Raku".   I have completed two hotel commissions, one in the Okura Hotel in Macau and the other in the Sanya Sunny Bay Hotel in Hainan.


My life has been stimulated by the variety of beautiful things I've experienced in my travels.  I am very mechanically-oriented and carry that to my pottery.  My goal is to ensure each piece has a smooth flow from start to finish - to create beautiful pieces of art - both functional and decorative - in a variety of firing techniques.
