I've been a professional fine art potter for over forty years. I grew up in Long Island, New York, and was the only member of the family that pursued the arts. Making a living as a clay worker wasn't easy in the early days, but I was inspired by the masters of the past and committed myself to a path of artistic distinction. I'm fortunate now to have collectors and customers from the world over. Even better, I'm teaching the next generation of up and coming artisans to achieve their dream to be a working creative and to build a studio of their own.
