Greetings, and welcome to my website. Highlights for 2020 include a little teaching, and some new exciting adventures and opportunities.

If you are going to the annual NCECA conference in Richmond, VA, you will find my work at the Signature Gallery tableware exhibition in the Gallery Expo. The conference and exhibits run from March 24-27.

Next I’ll be joining the St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour on May 8, 9, and 10 at the studio of Guillermo Cuellar. This will be the 28th year of the tour, which takes place in select studios in Minnesota along the river valley, not far from the Twin Cities.

A few weeks later from May 22- June 5, I’ll be co-teaching with my friend and colleague Lynn Duryea at a place I still call home, Penland School of Crafts, in Penland, NC. Together we’ll cover a wide range of handbuilding techniques, idea- generating methods, and an exploration of surface potentials appropriate for both sculptural and functional earthenware forms.

I’ve been invited to be one of the presenters of Utilitarian Clay VIII, which runs from September 9-12. The symposium takes place at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN. I’ll be joining sixteen other presenters for live pottery demonstrations, an exhibition, and evening presentations with invited speakers and panel discussions.

As always, if your travelling plans take you through Vermont this year, let me know if you’d like to visit my studio and showroom.
