Jeff enjoys making functional pottery, and believes that by making functional, one of a kind pieces, the end user of the product is able to incorporate art into their daily life. In addition to functional tableware, he’s especially interested in making ceramics for use in the Japanese tea ceremony.
Though he has a great deal of respect for production potters and the work they create, Jeff is more interested in creating singularly unique pieces. He wants to be the guy who made your favorite mug, your go-to soup bowl, or your special tea cup.

Darkest of night
With the moon shining bright
There’s a set goin’ strong
Lotta things goin’ on
The man of the hour
Has an air of great power
The dudes have envied him for so long
