"I have always wanted to live the life of a rural potter. The presence of the woods, gardens and wildlife is inspirational. Working with clay gives me a physical and spiritual connection to the earth. Making pottery that functions in use and aesthetic beauty has been a life long pursuit. My father was a potter in Massachusetts and Ohio in the 70's. Being in the studio was a great joy of my childhood. The process of making clay to the unloading of kilns was fascinating.
My partner and wife Susan Butterfield works with me to create hand- build and some wheel thrown pottery mostly table ware and bake ware."
