1/12 Scale Miniatures

Reticulated Glazes

Copper Glazes

Celtic Themed Pottery

If you came to see my recent work including teaware, reticulated glazes, planters for succulents, pin cusions, magnet vases and other functional housewares - I will be adding them in the future.

I divide my time between making 1/12 scale miniature pottery, functional life-size pottery, and teaching beginning ceramics. I have been a full-time ceramist since 1994.

I am best known for my scale miniatures, that I learned to create on my own by practice and experimentation. I am a Fellow of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans whose goal is to promote scale miniatures as an art form. My miniatures are examples of exceptional quality wheel-thrown porcelain artwork in 1-inch scale (one inch to one foot). Each piece is individually handcrafted on a full size potter's wheel. In detailed miniature, I create replicas of historic ceramic styles as well as modern art for miniature museums and collectors. Collections of my miniature work can be found on each continent around the world and have been featured in many magazines including Miniature Collector, Dollhouse Miniatures, Nutshell News, Dolls House World, Artisans In Miniature (AIM), and Miniaturas.

The Yes Store

If you will be in Santa Barbara, California between early November and December 24 -- be sure to stop by the "Yes Store" and see my work along with the work of several other Santa Barbara County artists.

Pottery made in the U.S.A.
