The Art Market Gallery is a cooperative of more than sixty East Tennessee artists dedicated to providing a vibrant marketplace for original art and fine crafts. We are located in the heart of downtown Knoxville with convenient parking on Gay Street, State Street Parking Garage and Market Square Parking Garage.
I’ve been working as a professional clay artist since 1978 after graduating from the University of Tennessee with a Master of Science Degree in Ceramics. My recent work reflects my continued interest in color, texture and function. Color is very important for my personal well-being. Therefore, I continue to experiment with bright glazes that flow into each other. My imagery is gleaned from my travels and Tennessee surroundings; whimsical images of animals and universal patterns in nature. Function is also an important aspect of my clay work, thus glazes are lead-free and the clay is a durable white stoneware. If my work has a sense of humaneness and provides pleasure, then I feel rewarded.
