A – Mountains
I am compelled by the sensation of seeing things fresh. As if waking, for the first time. The flora & fauna surrounding my studio continues to surprise me. My desire is to create something that might also bring its observer to a place of discovery.

Handmade in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Specializing in one-of-a-kind decorative vases and lamps. The glazing process is painterly, detailed, delicate, and time consuming. The work is done one piece at a time and multi-fired.
