WildFire Mudworks

My work includes art pottery and decorative ceramic wall art. My inspiration comes from the world around us and reflects my love of history and God’s great gift of nature.

Much of my ceramic work uses the Western Raku technique of firing. This technique combines the interaction of clay, glaze and fire in a rapidly changing series of environments that results in unique and often unpredictable results. I enjoy combining detailed designs with the spontaneous effects of raku glazes and firing to present elements of both structure and freedom in my pieces. In addition to the Western Raku firing technique, I also produce work using horsehair, obvarra and other alternative firing methods as well as traditional low- and mid-temperature firings.

Each piece of my work is handcrafted and is a one-of-a-kind, original piece of art.

The following galleries present a collection of my work gathered together by type into three groups. Please feel free to contact me, I’d love to answer any questions you have.
