I have been a production salad bowl maker for 20 years. I produce utilitarian bowls geared towards American Crafts Galleries. I also produce one of a kind burial urns, nested bowl sets, canisters, and hollow forms.
I feel my years as a production turner have made me aware of the importance of repetition to perfect a skill. I feel I can translate this skill to my students to make them more skillful and productive.
I have taught at every major craft school around the world and find Craft Supplies USA to be the best. The quality of the machines and the ability to deliver high quality timber for my projects is very important for a good experience.
