Originally from the Seattle area in Washington State, I moved to North Carolina for an undergraduate degree in Art and Education at Warren Wilson College near Asheville. After graduating in 2013, I spent 9 months at Pocosin Arts in Columbia, NC as a Resident Artist. In June 2014 I began an apprenticeship with Daniel Johnston at his pottery in North Carolina and completed the 3 year apprenticeship in 2017. I am currently working to setup a studio with my Fiancee, Erin Younge, on our property in Seagrove NC.
My pots are made with many ideas coming from North Carolina Pottery, both contemporary and traditional. Made with an eye for simple, handsome forms, these pots are made to fill a function and do so beautifully.
