As an artist he draws inspiration from industry, and the tradition of potters as both designers and laborers. As an educator he emphasizes the role that the pottery studio has historically played in society, how the medium of clay has shaped the way we view and interact with the world, and how students can use that knowledge to grow as artists and as people.
