I strive to make pottery that celebrates the joy of eating and drinking and creates a special relationship between the owner and the object. In the 21st Century, in a world of homogeneous, mass-produced products, a handmade piece of pottery in your hand is a choice that states that you want to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the moment. I make pottery to help accomplish that goal. My pottery becomes a witness and participant to the routines of your daily life. From my hands to your hands, this pot sits and waits for you and is glorified by your use of it.
My home and studio are located in Waterbury, Vermont. I live here with my wife Georgia and with our two sons Fletcher and Weston.
I make utilitarian pottery in a studio located in our renovated 1870 Carriage Barn in which my great great grandfather made wheels, carriages and sleighs.
My studio is usually open Tuesday – Saturday 12-5. I am also available by appointment.
Currently my work is fired at cone 6 in oxidation.
I have been making pottery since 1996.
I received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in 1998 and my Masters in Art Education from St. Michaels College in 2010.
I sell my pottery in locally and nationally in many different stores and galleries – these are listed under Retail Locations in the Menu. I also can be found at the Burlington City Art’s Artist Market in City Hall Park in downtown Burlington every Saturday from May to October.
I balance my time between pottery making and teaching. I teach beginning through advanced pottery classes for Burlington City Arts and I teach Ceramics in Undergraduate Art and Graduate Education at St. Michaels College.
