Profile Information

What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
Started Clay in High School in 1975, Graduated with an Associates off Fine Arts in 1980 from Camden County College , and a BFA with a concentration in clay from East Tennessee State University in 1982. I did my first professional show in the summer of 2982 b in Jonesboro Tennessee. I moved back to New Jersey a few years later. At that point I was a Studio Tech and a few years later adjunct at Glassboro State College ( now known as Rowan University). I have been doing Fine Craft Shows for 35 years. I have also taught privately as well as at various craft centers , and at Cumberland County College. I currently continue to sell my world in many different galleries from Maine to New Jersey. My work can also be found at the Festival of Fine Crafts at Wheaton Village in New Jersey in October and at the November Sugarloaf show in Gaithersburg Maryland.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I used to do reduction firing but after moving my studio to my home I can only fire Oxidation in an electric kiln.
