Legend held that the salamander, being the first creature to emerge from the forest floor after a fire, had special powers of endurance & rejuvenation. Hence, the name of my ceramic studio in Gibsons, on Canada's beautiful Sunshine Coast of BC.

My love affair with clay began when I first laid hands on the stuff, over 35 years ago in college. Since then, I've created functional and decorative pieces in porcelain, stoneware, & terracotta, taught clay technique & other art forms, explored primitive & alternative firing methods, and generally been up to my elbows in mud. This page follows my continuing journey with this most primal of artistic media.
