I seek to create forms that are balanced, finely uniform in thickness and elegant in form. I have been working in clay for 30 years. Twenty five years ago my wife and artist, Pamela Tripp, introduced imagery as part of the surface design. Thinking of pottery as a different substrate to work upon, Pamela’s personal artwork became transformed into the designs found on the pottery today. Though the main image may be repeated, no two pieces are alike. Each design is complimented with freehand embellishment. This signature addition makes each piece unique. We have always lived and worked near water and forests, our pottery reflects a feeling of closeness to the natural environment. Both Pamela and I maintain a studio in Baldwin, Michigan and in Waveland, MS.
