My pottery helps me express my creativity, love for nature and the desire to push the limits of convention and color. Each piece is an individual statement. Every project offers me a challenge to create unique art demonstrating appreciation of color, texture and function.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. Growing up surrounded by succulent plants I developed an appreciation for plant and animal life indigenous to the area. With my wife, I explored Southern Africa for almost a year, living in a tent and photographing the wildlife and natural beauty.
In 2000, I moved to Austin, TX, where I started pottery. I love to produce unique decorative and functional art including planters, vases, serving ware, urns and funky art for home and garden.
In 2018, I moved to Atlanta to be closer to the grandsons. I started pottery at Callanwolde Art School and have benefited from the new environment and different firing techniques taught there.
