In 2006, I moved to Taos, New Mexico from Colorado to help create a ceramics community. This included a summer workshop program, two residencies, ongoing classes and variety of firing possibilities. in 2014 I handed over Taos Clay and I am currently pursuing making full time. Taos Clay helped me draw in ceramic artists from all over the world and has been the majority of my education and background in ceramics. It takes a community to fire many of the kilns we have built around Taos and Taos Clay has been a vital part of keeping the ceramics community aware of the trends of contemporary ceramics. I have a gallery in downtown Taos where i show the majority of my work. I also host workshops in Taos and around the country as well as showcase my work in hotels, galleries, boutiques through out the United States, The intention of my website is to not only create an avenue to sell work directly to my collectors but also share my story of creating a life as an artist, father and avid outdoorsman in rural New Mexico. Please visit my daily photo blog or if you have the opportunity, come visit me in my gallery and studio in Taos, New Mexico. Ceramics is a medium that requires patience and experience. In no other craft is the artists up against so many variables. The clay and the firing process are constantly educating and opening up new challenges. Working in clay has been a meditative, grounding journey. It is humbling yet, rewarding. You are an alchemist trying to recreate and refine the elements into something functional and inspiring.
