Hi, I'm Mark! I enjoy making ceramic art and creating a wide range of personal handbuilt and wheel thrown work.
I began my clay journey at El Camino College, a community college in Torrance, at the age of 18. I worked with clay off and on at a variety of educational institutions, including Orange Coast College and a few private studios. I attended an independent ceramics study at El Camino College for many years after completing college. After a 22 year hiatus from ceramics, a friend gave me a wheel and I began classes again at Saddleback College. I have recently retired as a Deaf/Hard of Hearing teacher. Since then, I have gone all in and purchased solar panels, a kiln, and studio supplies, as I continue my journey that now includes a garage- based studio.
