The focus of my work is inspired by ancient Jomon pottery. An important element is the quality of a pot’s surface, which for me, is best achieved in the process of wood firing and salt glazing.

In the early 1990’s I built a variety of kilns at the studio. This provided the opportunity to offer summer workshops at our pottery. From 1993 until 2006, potters from around the world came to share a common interest in clay.
