Every piece of my work is made by hand.

My original ceramic glaze formulas use crushed Adirondack rock dust as an ingredient. My glazes are literally made from the mountains. There will be slight variations in sizes and colors because everything is hand made.

Uncompromising craftmanship and attention to detail makes the work suitable for daily use and heirloom quality collectors. All my work is microwave and dishwasher safe. It will last for generations if properly cared for.

The first kiln I built was a high temperature wood fired kiln. I've dug and processed clay from my backyard and now use local rock dust in my work. I've been working with clay for over 40 years.
