Welcome to my pottery Website

I began teaching as a graduate assistant in 1972 and teaching continues to be a great joy.   I am currently a full professor at Appalachian State University, in the Department of Technology where I have taught (for over 35 years)  in courses in ceramics---in design and construction, furniture making and design, metals, leather, technical illustration and design in drawing.  My primary focus is now on ceramics and I have had the experience of teaching and studying in this field through out the United States and in Japan, Africa, Australia and Tasmania.  Though I have made art pieces, a greater interest is on functional pieces of pottery and this timeless form of art. 

In 1998 I began a Crafts Enrichment Program  to offer hands on experience with crafts.
