A little background

I've been making pots full-time for over 40 years, ever since graduating from Temple University's Tyler School of Art with a MFA in ceramics. Also during this time I've regularly taught ceramics. Taking a little time away from my studio keeps my ideas fresh.

Selected teaching experience:

•  Greenwich House Pottery, New York City

•  Clay Art Center, Port Chester, New York

•  Sir Sandford Fleming College, Coburg and Belleville, Ontario

•  Koffler Centre of the Arts, Toronto, Ontario

•  Dundas Valley School of Art, Dundas, Ontario

•  Haliburton School of Art, Haliburton, Ontario. Summer workshops and Sir Sandford Fleming College Certificate Program.

I've also conducted over 150 workshops, lectures, demonstrations, and critiques across Canada and the USA. 

Professional activities:

•  Founding member of Artspace Gallery , Peterborough, Ontario

•  Member of the Professional Craftsman's Advisory Committee for the Ontario Crafts Council

•  Vice-President and later Chairman of Fusion, the Ontario Clay and Glass Association

•  Juror for both the Ontario Crafts Council and Fusion, as well as for other guilds and art associations

•  Featured in various publications including Fusion and Ceramics Monthly

•  Exhibited in many juried, group, and one-person shows across Canada, in the USA, and internationally
