2015 CSA-STL

This past week the folks over at CSA-STL announced the participating artists for this years program, and I am very excited to have been selected to participate!  You can read all about the program on their website, CSAstl.org and about the artists selected.


featured artist @craftalliance

Despite having a full schedule with all my ceramics classes and getting in as much cycling as possible before winter sets in, I’ve managed to keep new wall works coming along.  Here is a studio snapshot of bisqued clay components for the soon to be assembled works that I’m making for Craft Alliance.


looking back to grad sculpture

I graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2013 with a MFA in ceramics, however I had some of the most profound experiences in Thad Duhigg’s sculpture studio.  He allowed me to realize how important material choices are within the work, and how materials and their use can carry much of the content.  Here is a snap from a critique in the brand new gallery at SIUE, 2013. I wish I had some detail shots, but the work is comprised of welded steel, pigmented concrete, perforated hardboard, OSB, MDF, pine, and plywood.


a new one

I’ve been calling this series of rectilinear forms Architectonic.  This one is in Pigmented Concrete, Polished Brass, Oak, and Ceramic.
