About

Please contact me for any and all inquiries.

I moved to Philadelphia in 2012 and currently work out of my basement in Kensington.

I have been assisting Nate Willever since late 2019. We were recently accepted into the Studio Potter’s Grants for Apprenticeships Program. Looking forward to testing many more clays and glazes!

I also work as a freelance web developer if anyone needs a website 🙂

 

Statement

Materials are the foundation for my work. I use local, unrefined clays and glaze ingredients in the most direct ways possible. This process has helped me express a sense of quietude and time that is present in the many antiques I admire. My pots are ultimately a reflection of my own history and love for the ceramic craft.

I primarily work in red stoneware with a white ash glaze, fired to cone 6 oxidation. Different surface decoration techniques are used to iterate on these base elements. I also wood fire when possible, taking the opportunity to explore clay bodies that respond directly to the atmosphere.

 

More on Process

In the future I hope to share more information about the materials I gather and my approach to using them, hopefully in a way that is encouraging and applicable for others.
