My intent for using crystalline glazing on my work is to show the many different ways that these glazes can be used. Crystalline glazes, when applied correctly, are able to show movement, depth, and many different sizes and shapes of crystal growth. The shapes and forms of the work are determined by the specific quality I want to show with the glaze on that piece. Each shape is made to move the crystalline glaze across the surface, grow crystals, and show the energy that each glaze contains under specific conditions. I am creating and manipulating a crystalline environment to display the variety of results the glazes can produce.
I’ve been working with clay for a little over thirteen years. I got started by taking a college elective class at University of Southern Indiana. This is where I first learned about the process of crystalline. I then researched and tested the process until I got the results that I was content with. The crystalline glazing process is a constant learning process and I will always be researching new glazes and techniques to use. This constant learning process led me to receive my BS in studio art from University of Southern Indiana and my Masters of Fine Art in Ceramics from East Carolina University. I currently reside in Nineveh, Indiana with my wife Barbie and son Archer and work from my home studio.
