I haven't felt like I have much to tell people lately. I'm making pots and trying to sell pots. A show this weekend in Cataumet, then another next week in Chatham. Tomorrow I go down to Truro to help unload the salt kiln, with about 20 of my pots in it. Furthering my exploration of atmospheric firing, and deciding what kind of kiln to build. These photos came from Brian Taylor, the studio manager at Castle Hill Center for the Arts in Truro. If you look carefully, you'll see a couple of my faceted teabowls and a couple of my other pots. Back stack, front stack, kiln in action in the rain.
I make and sell functional pottery at Hatchville Pottery in Hatchville, a neighborhood of the town of Falmouth, at the west end of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. I'm a former journalist - 20 years as a photographer, writer and editor - who began to make pottery about 20 years ago in Alexandria, VA. My training is in pots for eating, drinking and displaying flowers, often with an Asian or late British influence. Hamada Shoji, Phil Rogers, Dan Finnegan, Nakazato Takashi, Kanzaki Shiho are all influences.
Married 40 years to Dee, a massage therapist in Falmouth, with one child, Marcus.
