a little about me...trained as a graphic designer...always a bit of a rock bird....first job, the art
department at rolling stone...next, a few fashion magazines: art director at mademoiselle &
conde nast for a few years...cbgbs + mudd club every night (it was a blast) & slept under my
desk at lunch...designed 12x12 album covers...art director at barneys new york & avedon studio... 
mtv in the 80's did my first super 8 rock video for the smiths "how soon is now"...
directed many more rock videos...married a rocker...had a daughter, anna...
directed tv commercials (a ton of fun and travel)...happy years in motherland...

 

took a class in pottery with the goal of remaking everything in my kitchen...
began making bottles for my friends at old field farm on the summer weekends...
got a space in a group ceramics studio in red hook, brooklyn...now living and
working in a 10 foot wide house in hudson, new york. constantly inspired by the work of 20th century studio potters: lucie rie, beatrice wood,
the japanese artist rosanjin-kitaoji...mexican folk pottery...american stoneware bottles...
for the moment the hope is to keep making things i find useful and beautiful and
send them out into the world...nothing makes me happier than a day downstairs
in the workshop listening to two dope queens and trying new ideas...usually like a shape and make 10 or 12 of each...a few always fail to
survive in one way or another...
try see if anyone wants them...and they are off...

i have an online sale a few mondays a month...
please join the mailing list on the contact page for updates on these sales,
as well as shows and other ceramic festivities.
