About the Artist

Clay as Art is my goal and inspiration. The human gure, my life’s experiences,
and images from nature fascinate my imagination; smooth surfaces, texture,
movement, and contrasts are often incorporated. I bring my 50 years of
experience to every lump of clay; to shape from nothing, a piece which lives
beyond myself with dignity and pride.
My love for clay began in 1970 at the Tucson Art Center while I was nishing my
degree in Microbiology at the University of Arizona. The same year I met Harry
Holl in Dennis, MA & decided then & there to become a potter, not a
Microbiologist. My interest to learn took me to Anderson Ranch in Aspen, CO &
then an apprenticeship with Harry Holl in 1972. I worked alongside Harry in the
summers for over 30 years learning from a master, all things clay. After my initial
apprenticeship I began my business, Sabino Stoneware Pottery, in Tucson
where I resided the rest of the year and began teaching at the Tucson Museum
of Art.
My intention as a potter was & is a spiritual one, to be one with the earth; to
make from a lump of clay, something of beauty that will endure beyond myself.
My love for drawing, painting & sculpture is present
