I am presenting this website as a way for people to get to know me and my artwork. Among other factors, like my family, background, and environment, my work in building/construction has helped form me as a person as well as a ceramic artist. “Making” is what I love most. I have enjoyed the process of building buildings, and I continue to enjoy building forms made from clay. I like the structure and architecture of both. There are times when I simply have to go to my studio just to get my hands around something tangible and create something new. Since I am now retired from my “day job”, of building concrete and wood structures, I have more time to spend on my own unique clay structures.
In 2006 I went to work for Architectural Resources Group as a Construction Manager. There I worked on projects in Yosemite National Park, The Alameda Theatre and Cavallo Point, to name a few. After three years with ARG I worked for a year and a half on preconstruction services for the new Exploratorium building at Pier 15. Since then I have done several training sessions for future construction superintendents, and taught Construction Management classes at City College in SF. I am currently available for construction consultation only, as my time is happily filled with clay and sfclayworks, instead of construction.
