Kanawha County


B.S. Business (Fairmont State)


I am primarily a functional potter, but have also done graphic artist work and photography.  I enjoy the outdoors.  Getting on a bicycle is a pleasant way to get outside and a wonderful stress reliever. I have almost always carried my 35mm SLR camera with me on bike rides.  PbP Pottery provides functional and decorative pottery in the Charleston, WV area.


I am primarily a functional potter, but have also done some graphic artist work, photography, page layout, and web page development (see cyclingscenicwv.com). I have a B.S. in Business from Fairmont State, but took as many art classes as possible.  I have attended several of the annual Potters Gathering at Cedar Lakes.  While attending Fairmont State, I was Duke Miecznikowski’s pottery assistant for two years.  I also worked with Robert Anderson at WVU.
