New Work in Shops



 I'm happy to have work represented by two new shops.

In November I shipped several pieces to Pragmata Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. I was honored to have to opportunity to make my Japan debut in the wonderful space. It is a fantastic representation of simple beauty following the wabi aesthetic.

Anagama Firing Sept 2013

I've finally gotten around to taking photographs from my last anagama firing in September. The firing itself went beautifully - ending right on schedule. At 72 hours we peered into the kiln, viewing the beautiful ember bed of glowing diamonds as we welcomed the sun rise. Feeling congratulated by the cool air of morning we went into town for a celebratory breakfast. It was a pleasure to fire with the new group of residents at Cub Creek, many of whom share the same passion for wood firing. It comes with both comfort and mystery to look over to a fellow potter after a long, moonlit shift and recognize the same ineffable feeling of accomplishment and exhaustion in their eyes. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to continue firing with this group throughout the rest of the year. 
Here are photos from the firing. I will update the information once prices are set. For now, please inquire if interested in work.

Sound of Night


Searching for the words
like stars in the night

Moonlight and dew
dripping on the tin roof

Fire and Mind

Does fire
flow like mind,

extinguishing itself
if left alone to burn?


Too much fuss,
and one is lost
in the smoke
