Artist Statement

The quiet life of the country potter is a myth. The romanticism of a simple life, spinning forms and firing with wood, has faded to be replaced by a richer reality. I live in a log home in rural Wisconsin. We have ten acres of land, three wood kilns and a joyous life filled with beauty, but that life is anything but quiet and serene. This may be a result of my personality as much as contemporary society, internet connectivity and the cost of living.
