I am a full-time Professor at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT. I teach all levels of ceramics from beginning to graduate level. I have also been providing workshops for the past 30+ years.

Workshop Details

I provide workshops in raku, pit and saggar, wheel throwing, glazing, firing and alternative finishing. Basically, if I’m using it on my personal work, I will provide a workshop on that specific technique. Techniques, such as lusters and melted copper, do require 2 days because of the multi fire process.

In steel, I specialize in the fabrication process. I use tig, mig, stick, and Oxy. Acetylene. For workshops in this specific area, I can accommodate up to 3 people.  Additional material fees will be applied for steel workshops. If interested, contact me to discuss your specific needs.

One-Day workshop, 9:30 am – 4:30pm in my Simsbury, CT studio

I have 2 Raku kilns and one large pit for firings. Workshops selection includes a focus on raku, saggar, smoke firing or you may wish to work with all three techniques. We can fit up to 6 kiln firings in a day that could represent a total of 42 pieces 6” wide. Bring your work or ship it to my studio.Pit firings are only possible when Mother Nature permits and if selected will reduce the number of kiln firings. I provide all the materials except Horse hair and feathers (bring your own).
