I have lived in the Hudson Valley since 1994. After many years as a painter and arts administrator in New York
City, I became more fully involved in ceramics. The natural beauty of this area is a strong inspiration in my work.
Frequently in my stoneware landscapes, I conceive of the clay slabs as a canvas. With the many glazes I make
and use, I seek to blur the distinction between painting and ceramics. Other wall pieces, made with smaller
handmade tiles, reflect an exploration of subtleties inherent in the color and texture of this technique. This is
created when small damp tiles are pressed into powdered colored porcelain, fired to stoneware and formed into
My work on the potter’s wheel is always a pleasure for me. I try new shapes and finishes in pieces which are
functional and hopefully esthetically pleasing as well. My decorative pottery frequently combines wheel thrown and
handbuilt techniques in order to create more expressive forms.
Many aspects of working in clay continue to intrigue me, especially those dealing with form, color and texture. I
believe I bring a painter’s eye to my work, thus blending the two disciplines.
Please feel free to contact me to arrange a visit to my studio in LaGrangeville, NY or if you are interested in
purchasing my work.
