I have been working as an artist–first in ceramics and later in sculpture–since 1961. Over the years, I’ve used a wide variety of materials including granite, marble, bronze, metal, ceramic, and wood. Projects have ranged from megalithic-scale Caelum Moor in Arlington, Texas, to small bronze platters, vessels, and life-cast fruits and vegetables; from kinetic, welded steel totems created in the Anza Borrego desert to site-specific basalt boulders embedded at tide line in Fiji. In the 1980s and early 90s I received public commissions for work in San Jose, Palm Desert, Orange, and Ontario, California; and my smaller work is included in private collections.
Educated at Pomona College, which owns several large sculptures, and the Claremont Graduate School (now University) in Claremont, California, I taught ceramics and sculpture at Pomona for 40 years before retiring in 2000. Since then, my wife and I have divided our time between Claremont, the Anza Borrego desert where my studio and foundry are now located, and the small tropical island of Taveuni, Fiji Islands.
