I began creating handmade stoneware and porcelain utilitarian ware and sculpture in my Montague studio in 2001. Located in the beautiful Pioneer Valley, surrounded by the Connecticut and Deerfield Rivers, the rolling hills of Western Massachusetts was a wonderful place, rich in heritage and tradition to find inspiration for my work. In 2015 my wife Kat and I moved to Brattleboro, Vermont. We are surrounded by the beautiful West and Connecticut Rivers. The arts community is vibrant and the outdoor focus of the surrounding area is a wonderful place to spend time and draw inspiration.
The clay I work from is individually crafted on the potter’s wheel, hand built, or cast in molds of my own design, bringing out the unique personality of each mug, plate, bowl or jar. My water fountains, set in an entrance way or garden, can bring the relaxing sounds of water into your home, lending charm and elegance to your personal space.
For celebrating special occasions with friends and family, or a unique gift for a wedding, anniversary or birth, the one-of-a-kind work of Good Dirt Pottery is a piece of New England that fits in a country home or city dwelling.
From my hands to your home, the creative journey will continue with you. Whether it’s the quiet presence of a handmade vase created in collaboration with earth and fire, the comfort of the day-to-day ritual of reaching for that certain mug to start your morning with, I hope you will find that the pleasure and affordability of handmade ceramic fits your personal style and traditions.
Enjoy your visit.
