I re-opened Arbitrary Forms Studio when Karen and I moved to Asheville in 2015. I create unique functional objects and sculptures that explore shapes that I have made and the ideas that formed them over the past 40 years. At this point, my practice focuses on vessels that are based on combinations of positive and negative, volumetric shapes with surfaces that include binary symbols based on Morse code and other systems of representation.

I make functional pottery–tableware and serving pieces. One line of work is decorated with sgraffito or mishima designs inspired by nature. A second line is glazed with a blue glaze and ashes. Everything is dishwasher and oven safe.
