Biography

I have been in West Virginia for over half my life now. I moved here for the fantastic whitewater and beautiful scenery. I began making pottery as my life began here. Each of my creations are inspired by the same beauty that brought me here. I studied at Marshall University, apprenticed with Ken Bichell and Keith Lahti.
