Attending Arizona State University, Tempe, majoring in Art, I was influenced by the geometric designs of the Native Americans.
These pots are made with stone and porcelain clays, using a plaster bat for the base. They are built from the bottom up, with a profile template to keep the shape using small pinches of clay joined one at a time, waiting for the correct hardness before adding another layer.
When dry, the pots are bisque-fired in an outdoor catenary arch brick kiln to a temperature around 1,600 F, hardened enough to receive the glaze. After glazing using formulas I prepare in my studio, the pots are then fired again to temperatures reaching up to 2,500 F.
I always work to music.
